Setter Awinger
Series The Listener
Number 4538
Date 19/01/2019
Grid 1411 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble In some cells the crossing answers clash: enter both letters in thematic order. One item is missing: insert it across the edge of two non-clash cells. After filling the grid, replace four letters with DCLX to produce four framing items (in straight lines). The first letters of clues to across answers starting with S, in alphabetical order of answers, spell out what must be shaded (54 cells, bounded internally by 35 cell edges). The Chambers Dictionary (2016) is the primary reference; one answer is an abbreviation.
