Greetings from the Calder Valley! As you are probably aware, there was a bit of a mix-up this morning with the puzzle previously inadvertently published a couple of weeks back being republished this morning on line and a different puzzle in the paper. However all is now sorted out and we have a pleasant puzzle by Ozymandias to tackle. I can confirm that our setter today is not the previously published setter that has used that name in the past.
A nice enjoyable puzzle, well suited to Friday, which kept me amused on a bus journey this morning, with a little tip of my hat to Crypticsue who helped me with a couple of stuckages. I am a bit concerned about one or two words used as anagram indicators that wouldn’t normally be so, but it’s a small point in a good puzzle.
