Isn't it amazing how they think we'll fall for it - and it's so obvious   Bless 'em - they must think we were born yesterday.

Nope - not an ivy.  Are the leaves slightly hairy?  That could be the cause of skin irritation.

Not ornamental rhubarb and definitely not any Gunnera I've ever seen - I know there's a small one, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't look like your plant.

KEF - it wasn't exactly warm!!!  There was a keen north wind - builders needed lots of mugs of hot tea and helpings of rhubarb and custard cake,

In front of Hefty's house there's a Francis E Lester rambling rose     http://www.classicroses.co.uk/products/roses/francis-elester/ 

It's taking it's time to get going, the conditions under that tree aren't brilliant for roses, but this year it's put on quite a bit of new growth - Hefty should get a bit more seclusion when it really gets going
