General:
"A Canterbury Tale Remembered Here". The place is Witham Friary. Here, England's first Carthusian Monastery was founded by Henry II as a penance for the assassination of Thomas a Becket in Canterbury Cathedral. Also, to the west of here, at East Cranmore, is the East Somerset Railway, a preservation society that runs "The Black Prince". The real Black Prince is buried in Canterbury Cathedral, so here we find two links with Canterbury in the Somerset countryside. The dandelion is for the Lions of Longleat (just to the north of Witham Friary). The old car is an illustration of the text as is the telephone box. The book and glasses are for the reading room which is the converted dovecote of the monastery. The Beefeater is, of course, a Yeoman of the Guard. It is at Witham Friary that the new trains belonging to Yeoman Quarries, join the main line on their journey to Westbury.
Key:
The roman numeral here is XV (15). There is no clock in this picture but the signal box is number X4 (or times 4 or time's 4 - time is 4). Therefore the 4th word "need" should be put into position 15 in the "key" message
Boy's Name:
Cheese could be green but all the clues here ad up to another colour. Things happen once a blue moon - people get away with blue murder - Blue John is a semi-precious mineral from Derbyshire and the original Madonna traditionally wore blue. The answer to this clue is BLUE.
Article:
If you take the ferry from Gosport, you go to PORTSMOUTH. Here HG Wells served an unhappy apprenticeship as a draper before going on to write War of the Worlds - about visitors from Mars
