 Working with groups and organisations I produced a series of crosswords that offer an alternative guide to Stanmore and reveal something of the knowledge, stories and specialisms of those encountered. The puzzles represent the Stanmore Choral Society, staff at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, the Bird Walk of Canons Park, Stanmore Bowls Club, London Underground staff, Bletchley Park veterans and local stories about Stanmore’s infamous Duke of Chandos. I collaborated with setters Geoff Heath (aka “Aeronaut’) and Roy Dean (setter for the Times) and the self-titled Stanmore Puzzlers to compile the crosswords.  The puzzles form the basis of the artwork at Stanmore station. The first challenge was to solve the puzzles in booklets that were distributed across the Jubilee Line. As the project title suggests the answers can only be found at Stanmore station, alongside a series of artworks that unpick the clues to some of the puzzles.  For those prepared to take the challenge the answers really do lie at the end of the line.
