Araneus

if nothing else it's an Araneus, i suspect the Garden Cross Spider (Araneus diadematus) did it perhaps have a cross on it's abdomen? I think i can see one, may be able to pull it out with a bit of photo editing...

Thanks

After looking at other images of spiders by that name it seems most likely to be that.
I can't remember if it had a cross but it certainly had a multitude of patterns on it's back.
Thank you for the identification :)
