Please can anyone identify this deciduous shrub?
No definitely not Honeysuckle. The flowers are teeny weeny and it does not climb and has a 5-6 inches woody trunk.
I'm convinced that's honeysuckle. Not all honeysuckle climbs and it can get very tall so what's wrong with such a thick trunk?
Lonicera Japonica... https://www.rhs.org.uk/plants/details?plantid=1187
The flowers are only about 8mm long and don't really have any colour to them. It is definitely a deciduous shrub and not a Honeysuckle. Anyone got any other ideas ?
If it is flowering at the moment my guess would be Lonicera × purpusii 'Winter Beauty'.
I agree with honeysuckle too. I have a deciduous shrubby one that has tiny pink flowers in the spring.
Looks like Lonicera tatarica.
It comes in white, pink and red forms, some of which are quite variable.

Ok- I concede- you are all right- it does now look like a Honeysuckle - thank you. I didn't realise they came in shrub-like forms.
