Anyone know what this hideous beast is??

Morning all,
I was out in the garden this morning picking some lovely roses to put in the house, when I heard a dragonfly buzzing... I've been wanting to get a photo of a dragonfly so badly... so I had a looksie, and noticed it was trapped in a web... then I saw the hideous beast that owns the web... so I thought twice about trying to free the dragonfly (sorry dragonfly!) - I wasn't about to wrestle with the hideous beast!! I went and grabbed the camera instead.... I REALLY REALLY hate spiders, and was trembling the whole time, but wanted to get the pics to see if DH knew what kind of spider it is... do any of you know???

Isn't is just AWFUL LOOKING!!

Thanks for looking. Warmest wishes, Catie xo
