Phylloneta impressa (L. Koch, 1881)
Formerly Theridion impressum, this is a fairly common spider, which makes an untidy web on the lower braches of small trees, shrubs and other vegetation. It occurs infrequently to be common on Budby South Forest and Sherwood Forest CP, but can be overlooked as there are very similar species.
