Hello Dave. Althogh the leaf shape is unusual, the new red/ purple shoots look like spinosa to me.

How about it being a Bullace or Green damson Prunus insititia

The leaves look about right for it.
They are normally smaller but broader than the Blackthorn leaves.

The leaf shape does look like Bullace but the leaves are generally much larger than Blackthorn. At least round this way.
