Does anyone know what sort of Honeysuckle this is, and do I have to prune it, if so, when and how much do I have to take of. Thanks for your help once again. I wouldn't have got it to flower if it wasn't for advice from this site.

If its in flower now, I'd think it was Lonicera serotina, late Dutch honeysuckle, specially if its highly fragrant, or if its been in flower a while, maybe L. Belgica, also fragrant. Pruning, where you live, best done in early spring if you want to control its size. Cut back and take out any dead stems at the base.
