Spider ID

My Identification of Arachnids isn't that great do I would appreciate if anyone can ID the following which I photographed on my phone in the UK mid Oct.
Apologies for the somewhat poor image but if anyone can provide an ID it would be greatly appreciated.
There were 2-3 specimens present between some cladding and I estimate this individual to be approx 30mm long.

Many Thanks.
