Crossword ‐ January 2020

Clive brought his latest contribution to the Dartmoor Magazine, which comes out quarterly. It’s a classy publication with an even classier crossword. We always enjoy solving them, although his local references sometimes leave us having to take an answer on trust from the cryptic elements.

Peter’s fearsome Crossword left the others feeling a bit disappointed because the effort of solving wasn’t quite matched by the satisfaction of completing it. Sometimes that’s just the way it goes, especially if you don’t have a guinea pig to try it on first.

Here is the solution.
