Hi @Foresthouse welcome to GF (y)...it looks to me like a clematis which as been left to trail on it's on instead of someone trailing it properly.

If it's still healthy try and wrap it through the wire because they give a glorious show if it is one.

Thanks for your help-so no pruning? I should just try to wrap it around the fencing?

This is growing along the side of my house. I have no idea what it is or how to care for it. I’ve never seen it flower. Help!
It’s difficult to say without leaves?! It’s either a type of clematis or it could be young wisteria. Your going to have to be patient for the growth to form. Don’t cut down or back just yet! Kerry.

Hi again, yes tie in and add support where you want it to grow. Climbers only climb with something to climb onto! Bit like us!

Hello @Foresthouse and welcome to the forums. I really don't think that looks like clematis, and agree you need to wait and see how it looks when it leafs up. Will you please show us some photos then and maybe we will be able to identify it for you ...:)
