General:
"Barons Full of Power" refers to the barons meeting at Berkeley prior to going to Runnymede to make King John sing the Magna Carta. "Full of Power" also refers to the nuclear power station at Berkeley. 1215 was the date of the Magna Carta. This time is shown on the clock face which faces north. Church clock faces on the north often show the wrong time. The devil was supposed to live on the north side of the church and it was to confuse him as to the time of services. There are some train numbers of scrapped trains on the gravestones and on the three front ones are an extra clue to Berkeley. Dylan Thomas (Welsh) is on one side and Thomas Gray (English) is on the other. Between the two lies Sabrina Span (a span being a bridge and Sabrina being the goddess of the River Severn). Until an accident in 1960 there was a rail bridge across the Severn from Sharpness (just north of Berkeley) to Lydney in the Forest of Dean. The cowslip is included because Edward Jenner was born in Berkeley where he experimented with cowpox vaccine before coming up with a vaccine for smallpox. The cheese in the mousetrap is Double Gloucester which is made here. The rook refers to the castle (chess) and the swans live at Slimbridge, just to the north, where you will also find the Sharpness Canal - hence the barge.
Key:
Two roman numerals appear here - XIII and XIV (13 and 14). The numbers on the clock face, reading clockwise of course - are 26 and 27 (see general clues above for the other clock face) the 26th and 27th words in the text are "nostalgic" and "memories" which should go into positions 13 and 14 in the "key message.
Boy's Name:
The learned Jew is a rabbi and if you invite him to "T" you get "rabbit". To talk from teatime, all night until dawn, is also to "rabbit". The answer to this clue is RABBIT
Article:
The dragon fighter mentioned here is not St George - and probably did more for this country than St George ever did. Dragons spit fire and this fighter is the Spitfire - there is an Aero Park at Helston which has many features on the Battle of Britain and the Spitfire. The designer (or father) of the Spitfire was Reginald Mitchell and he was born in STOKE ON TRENT which is famous for its bottle shaped pottery kilns.
