Any help greatly appreciated. The plant is climbing vigorously up the wall of my new house (hence the lack of ID) despite being in essentially an alleyway with little direct light. Thank you.

I agree with John, it's Hydrangea Petiolaris.

Oooooh. The blooms are in the broccoli stage so the plant may put on a show soon:
