The answers of these clues are either London Underground stations or Docklands Light Railway stations, depending on which heading they're under. The clues are all cryptic and each clue has one answer (that I know of!:-P ) unless stated otherwise. If you can think of more than one answer (or 2 if that number is shown), please feel free to enter all the answers you can think of. Or, if you'd rather, just type in the no. of answers shown. If you want to, you may use an Underground map, search engine, ask friends, etc to help you.

So here goes:

London Underground:

  1. An angry monarch with a holy man
  2. She was not amused
  3. Created a valley
  4. Heidi's house
  5. Rangers
  6. Gabriel
  7. A rabbit's thoroughfare
  8. A settlement that is quite in a county
  9. Quarry Bank mound towards Russia (assuming you're in Britain, I mean if you're in Russia, it would be towards Alaska and Canada:-P )
  10. Dart open space
  11. Tea party at Chatsworth
  12. School
  13. This station is falling down
  14. Where calcium carbonate is cultivated
  15. Hair at the top
  16. Building material is heavy
  17. A disciple's forest
  18. A soldier's crossing
  19. H2O from Ottawa
  20. Twang thoroughfare
  21. Rapunzel's mound
  22. Her Majesty's tree
  23. Open space in Rotterdam
  24. Stop at John O'Groats (2 answers)
  25. Large harbour on a country lane
  26. Secondary leap

And the Docklands Light railway:

  1. Cockney landmark
  2. Pop group
  3. Citric building
  4. Okehampton's thoroughfare
  5. No ducks at this harbour (2 answers)

Also, back on the subject of the Underground, does anyone know the answers to these clues. Unfortunately I've forgotten the answers to these!:-P

Unknown answers:

  1. A drunken bird
  2. The top of a cathedral
  3. Set fire to the dead

  3. Set fire to the dead Kilburn?
Others may well have got in first with these. I was studying a tube map and filling them in as the penny dropped.
