i Cryptic Crossword 1967 Quixote

May 29, 2017

Nothing too difficult today I thought. 3d and 18ac might be unfamiliar to many solvers (and the former certainly was to me), but perfectly gettable with a little thought. I had question marks beside 9d and 15d, but both are explained in the blog and comments over on the other side. So to the rest of a good old fashioned slightly damp, misty Bank Holiday.

COD? 1d – ‘Bird getting damaged with its wings twisted (6)’.

To January 2013 once more:

  1. A barn of a place? Couldn’t parse it though!

    Question marks for 9d and 11a. 15d was new to me but all good stuff.

    9d went in with a shrug; otherwise all plain sailing. In general this struck me as a masterly example of a plain crossword, and it was a pleasure to solve.
