Very large cocoon on a tree

Whilst walking in Hertfordshire I found this very large silky and spongy cocoon stuck to an oak tree. It was attached by silk.

 

I have been thousands of miles walking in the UK but have never seen anything like this:

It was 9 cm tall and 6.5 cm across. Very unusual.

 

Thanks for any help - I am really intrigued.
