Oh, I do like to be ... Part 1
« on: Thu 27 May 2021 18:48 »
  1. Lay on ...
  2. "Didn't we have a lovely time...?"
  3. Found on Wimbledon Common.
  4. English translation of Dublin.
  5. Spoil the entrance.
  6. Colourless harbour.
  7. The era of the pen and the cob.
  8. Did the Beatles have a ticket to here.
  9. A racing Ferrari, perhaps.
10. An atmospheric town?
11.Wide steps.
12.This small place sounds, but doesn't look, rather misty.
13.A famous Handel piece, transposed, counterintuitively, downwards for Fife.
14.Whence came Stevenson's Master.
15.Speaks indistinctly.
16.Pit boss.
17.Comic much loved in Northern Europe for "Dinner for One."
18.Home of the skink.
19.Is it mild or bitter here?
20.A very spirited lark and Spartans.
21.Somewhere for a potter, maybe, but nowhere near bmb..
22.Trade - in timber, no doubt.
23 A market for mushroom growers.
24.The offspring of a handbag?
25.Central to a candle.

Get your road atlases out if needed. Nothing at all to do with refereeing or even football, but it may pass the odd minute or two for anyone interested.

Part 2 is ready if desired.

Alas my atlas is not sufficiently detailed to show a town or village called Wombles. I shall, of course, bow to bmb's superior knowledge - a chap would be a fool not to.

It should now be 11 down, two further answers from Microscopist have been added as an edit. All are correct, with the exception of the one you mention - and that only needed to be more specific.

A sterling effort, but you are right to be doubtful about 13. You are unlucky, being on the right lines, but ending on the wrong side of the country.
