Which rose is this, please?

I saw this picture in a magazine but the rose isn't labelled. I would quite like a pink rose like this but I can't even tell what kind it is (climber, etc.). It seems to be growing quite tall in the picture, though.

Does anyone know which rose this is, or could anyone suggest a similar one please?

The picture is large so here is a link to it:

If the photo was in a magazine why not contact them and ask if they know the name of the rose? Looks like a rambler to me.

Look up 'Constance Spry' it's a climber, I have one, it is prolific! :)) absolutely beautiful rose!

'Constance Spry' looks lovely, and the scent would be a strong point as it's near a seating area. It's a shame it's not repeat flowering though. Is there another rose I could plant not to far away to provide some interest after Constance Spry had finished? The border is a south-facing wall, I am planning to have the roses at the back, leaning on the dry stone wall.

Actually, I think I will gor for both Constance Spry and Gertrude Jekyll. The David Austin catalogue recommends planting three at once, however for two roses this will add up to quite a total. Would one of each be alright?

Yes, I would go for one of each.. :))
