General:
"Steaming Cider" refers to the Bulmers Steam Centre at Hereford. Larry is Steve's nephew - they were around the same age and used to go train spotting together.
The plant is Pennywort - chosen to reflect the money in the main picture. The loo is included because of the pennies and also for the chain (see below). The piggy bank also concerns the money as do the wrens which used to appear on farthings which disappeared in 1960.
The barrel is for the cider making industry around Hereford and the daisies are just pretty. However, they do form a chain and a Chained Library is to be found in Hereford Cathedral. A special map is also in Hereford Cathedral. It is called the Mappa Mundi and shows the world (centred on Jerusalem) as it was known in the late 13th century. The globe was included for the same reason. (Incidentally, after the book was published there was much controversy over Hereford selling the Mappa Mundi - I don't know if it is still in the Cathedral today)
Key:
The roman numeral I (1) appears here. The only time mentioned is a nine o'clock meeting at the Odeon. The ninth word in the text is "I". Put "I" into position 1 in the "key" message.
Boy's Name:
A guardian who gives out tickets and guards you when in gaol is a Warden.
The answer to this clue is WARDEN.
Article:
At Wookey Hole, Madame Tussaud has a storehouse. However, it is not just out-of-date royal heads which are stored at Wookey so you must look for another place which connects Madame Tussaud with royalty. At WINDSOR there is a Madame Tussaud exhibition at the station, showing Queen Victoria in the Royal Waiting Room. The royals here are certainly very still and definitely waiting.
