Are spiders taking over?

I have been wondering for a couple of weeks now if spiders are taking over my house in brighton, and have seen the same ones in other areas of the town.

They seem to be multiplying at a quick rate and are all over the trees outside and oftern inside.

Now though this week it looks like we have two larger ones that are either fully grown or more important.

One is hide up at the top of our washing line bracket and the other on a large pot plant.

They are thick brown bodies and spiky legs and they have very strong webs.

Me wonders if they will take over or the end of summer will kill them off or drive them inside.

apparently they are European Garden Spider (Araneus diadematus) or Korsspindel.
