Well I like it...quite small compared to the most common garden snail, about 1/2 the size.

Oh dear I was asked by WTSWW to do a survey of snails in Brynna Woods 3 years ago and gave up as most woodland snails appeared to be LBJ's.
Sorry can't help on this one

Looks like a pale form of Banded snail - (and they vary) - its White-lipped Snail - Cepaea hortensis
Not an expert though..........

Top might be brown-lipped, but I cant see the lip properly, next is Amber Snail - comesin variant colours, the golden amber is stunning and last is white -lipped again I think.
Hopefully.........
