      Anyone know which insect this is?
      It was crawling up a wall in my house (until last night).
      Thanks in advance for any help.

      I have since found out it’s a Ichneumon wasp (female).

      Ichneumonidae; yeah you got it. They have a characteristic horse head in the wing structure, which makes them easy to identify.
