This spider is an Araneus diadematus.
https:--en.wikipedia.org-wiki-Araneus_diadematus
They are found throughout Europe and across North America.
Adult females range in length from 6.5 to 20 mm (0.26 to 0.79 in), while males range from 5.5 to 13 mm (0.22 to 0.51 in).
On researching this spider I found out that their legs have no muscles. They move by hydraulics alone - Amazing!
WARNING! - Ladies of a sensitive disposition should not look too closely as I think its private parts may be visible!
