Hygromia cinctella ?

This looks like a Hygomia species. H.cinctella has a very sharp keel, which is not that obvious in your specimen. However, it does not look like H. limbata, which has a 'normal' rounded keel. I tend to favour H. cinctella (which is quite common here around Oxford).

agree with cinctella

I agree with this - it seems to be spreading fast, and I saw it in West Yorks a few years back.
