Three Marbled Orb-weaver spiders (Pumpkin Spider) {Araneus marmoreus} in close proximity on a bramble bush. Two were even using the same web.

As often seems to be the case - a carapace view wasn't going to happen.

Pip Collyer commented that without the carapace view these could one of three species

A quadratus, diadematus or marmoreus

The background colours are very variable it's the carapace pattern that is important.

A return visit the next day proved the wisdom of this help.

Wasp Sp?

The wasp is Ancistrocerus species male. These are a bit tricky to separate – maybe gazella, parietinus or parietum.
You can compare on Falk’s flickr or BWARS but you probably need microscopic details to tell them apart reliably.
