Sorry its late Brendon,but if your still interested.

20d way across sea / the way is LANE /also across river (R) giving you LA(R)NE /google larne you will get it>

13d Cephas of Iconium,the def is Giver,with the obvious anagram hint/google cephas and again i think you will get it.

Hope this helps.
