I found this fairly straightforward. Solving time: 16 mins.

In line with recent practice, will note a fairly small number of what may have been the trickier clues, but happy to explain others if asked.

* = anagram < = reversed

ACROSS

1 AA C (about) HEN

11 SEPTA (tapes)* Plural of septum

14 ILL E GAL

16 SAMISEN hidden – a Japanese guitar

25 AV (Authorised Version – King James Bible) OUCH (That hurts!) You sometime see ‘ow’ for that too

DOWN

5 (l)ARCH Pollarded = take the top off

13 PIL (lip<) CHARD

21 UTAH Hidden reversal indicated by ‘up’

    Thanks to NMSINDY for keeping this going! My Sheffield friend has just won his 4th or 5th Oxford Dictionary, so it looks as though they could do with a few more entries! All feedback very welcome!
