The body of this is the length of my entire little finger. The bars in the cream fabric of my curtains are an inch long. This spider is bigger than any I can find record of in the UK. I've uploaded it to an identification site and will update with the news. I am so freaked out! The only spider similar in size I can find is a Wolf Spider or Hobo Spider. All the others look similar but are much smaller. I wont sleep tonight now!
