Big brown hairy caterpillar

Big, brown & hairy caterpillar

Saw this lovely caterpillar today, whilst out for a walk around RSPB nature reserve at Pulborough,Sussex. It was on the ground, close to a path but near a hedge of brambles, nettles etc. Caterpillar was approx. 7-8 cms long. Quite hairy, although it doesnt look as hairy in the photo. Dark brown with the coppery stripe. Any ideas?
