Scarce Umber ...

... looks much more promising! I don't know caterpillars well enough to confirm it 100% but it seems a good match. See photos on the ukleps site (scroll down the list to find Scarce Umber):

By rights it ought to have been in a tree or shrub, but could have dropped from one if there were trees in the vicinity.
