    How do you get 2D? I have it as one of the 14 places, and guessed it was the one locality (rather than one of the two hills) that match the cross letters.
    I also have no idea how the wordplay in 23D works.

    Thanks.
    I think 26A is the location I’m missing. I read it as overlapping definitions – your application won’t be a success if you get this, plus the whole clue as the 2nd definition.

      Hi Rupert…

      not sure I quite understand what you mean here – but the answer for 26A is BLACKBALL and it is one of the 14 NZ locations. I have to say I didn’t think this was one of Kropotkin’s best clues!
