General:
"Brush Up" is partly an anagram and partly a direction. "Brush" is an anagram of Shrub and "up" tells you to go up a hill - Shrub Hill being one of the main stations in Worcester. The text reference to 1029 concerns a train number - the "County of Worcester". The plant is Camomile - with which you can make tea in the Worcester china teapot (if you can get the dormouse out of the teacup you could then drink the tea). There are a couple of references to cricket - famous in Worcester where the ground is in sight of the Cathedral. The needle and thread refer to the Glover's Needle which is all that is left of a ruined church in the city now surrounded by traffic. Gloves used to be one of the main industries in Worcester. Now for all the K's. The HQ of Kay & Co., the mail order company, is in Worcester and the cathedral appears in their logo. The kestrel and two kites are simply to emphasis the letter K.
Key:
The roman numeral II (2) appears here and the only reference to time is the speed sign showing 20. (Speed being only a measure of distance covered in time) The 20th word in the text is "find" - put "find in position 2 in the "key" text
Boy's Name:
One who goes ahead to show the right way of living is a saint and an anagram (letters walking around) of "as tin" is also a saint. The answer to this clue is SAINT.
Article:
Man's best friend is said to be his dog. The most famous dogs at Windsor are the Corgies. One of the breeds of Corgi is the PEMBROKE. Also, at Pembroke, Harry Tudor (later to become Henry VII) was born.
