Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. Guess the answers, then make the clues fit! Araucaria where art thou? And what became of Bunthorne's legacy?

I agree! But for the sake of my sanity could someone please tell me if my answer to 14a - art historian - is correct, and if it is, please parse it for me.

I think you're all being a bit hard on Paul: it was difficult to get going but very entertaining, I thought. My husband even got involved in doing it, and he detests cryptics!

There's just one I still can't parse:
16D Treat a foot breaking three times, getting old (6,2)

I have ATTEND TO, but I can't see why, beyond 'treat' being the definition.

A foot = A END
[breaking] three times - TTT (times = T)
getting old - O
