Plant identity please

Just moved into a new property. I have a vine like plant growing profusely in the back garden and would like to know what it might be. I thought initially it might have been a Honeysuckle vine but I am not sure. I would like to cut it back but want to identify it if possible first. The long winding stems break easily at a node where two  further stems bud off. There are no obvious flower buds but it may be too early in the year.


This is a typical stem with leaf layout...


Thanks for any help

    Looks like honeysuckle to me.
    A great library has something in it to offend everybody.

    I'd say maybe Lonicera Japonica Halliana.

    It looks very happy
  • Hi All
    Thank you for the replies. Yes, I suspected as such. I grew several Honeysuckles where I last lived in France, including some wild varieties  from cuttings I collected from plants growing in a hedge. I just caught the scent as I cycled past.  I can't remember them being as vigorous as this one though. And yes Fire, It's pretty happy.:-)  Ought to give a good display.
