Solution to Sheaf

Did you play this one with an unloaded hand? The solution is in this link. The following video explains just the clues, then the theme is noted after that.

This is a puzzle I wrote 16 months ago which has now worked its way to the top of the pile. In case you weren’t paying attention the first time, the perimeter here contains a line from Danielle Dax’s song “Cutting The Last Sheaf”, from her debut LP “Pop Eyes”. Thanks to Skirwingle for the test solving, and you can thank him that you got a Staffordshire village instead of a tiny uninhabited Isle of Scilly. (When making this grid, I’d recently used the two more obvious fills for that slot in other puzzles, so went for something… less common!)
