Bonjour from La Bien Assise at Guines, near Calais. Tudor historians among you will recognise the town as the site of the Field of the Cloth of Gold in 1520. Still not very warm, but at least it’s not raining and we don’t have to go paddling when we leave our caravan.
I’ve not had regular daily access to the crosswords while I’ve been away, which may account for a certain rustiness when I came to do this one, tipping it into *** territory when the last two or three clues held me up. 9d was last in.
