don't think this is Discus rotundatus as not enough whorls, Hygromia cinctella is plausible, but few records in north, do you have any better pictures? E.g. in profile

Yes it would be great to see

Yes it would be great to see a photo showing the keel in profile if you spot this again!

Keel

I'm not certain that the keel, if apparent, would help here.
The missing link is the fine ribbing seen on mine here

It would be nice to ID this but I cannot.
As far as north is concerned David, whilst under-recorded here (in Orkney), it seems widespread - I have it in my garden along with Strawberry, Hair, Cellar and Chrysalis.
I think the key is spotting them!
