Cryptic Crossword 1

· By Steve Raine · Published by Steevieweeviewoo · Published 4 months ago

Constructor's Note: This was a gift for a friend, which they appreciated and it also sparked my interest into doing more of these. Clues 1a, 20d are slightly personalised, but you can solve them from the wordplay easily enough. Thanks to Brad Johnston who helped me assess it after I was done and offered feedback on the wording. Some of his suggestions have been incorporated
