Probably T. striolatus?

I agree with Mark, but I think I can see a faint white opaque line running round the edge of the shell in photo 2, and a slight angle to the edge in the last photo, which suggest Trochulus striolatus. Also, striolatus loses its hairs when about half-grown, while the others retain them to maturity.
It's not unusual to find hispidus and striolatus together, as both are very common in many habitats, but I expect Ashfordia to be in wetland or wet-woodland habitats usually.
