Big grey spider - any thoughts please?

This spider, body length approx 20mm - I didn't get closer as it was acting rather defensively/aggressively - ran up my curtains last night.  I have not seen anything like it before.  With it's furry grey abdomen, I thought at first it was a Mouse Spider, but seems too big.  I then thought maybe a colour variant of Tegenaria spp but the abdomen is really quite plump compared to photos I can find.   Interestingly, in the photos its patterns are showing up - wihtout the flash, it just looks very grey.  it has spun itself a flat web with a hole in the middle that it was sitting over.

Thank you in advance for your help with this one!
