Elderly aunt gave me a cryptic clue. I hate cryptics. but somehow it got me hooked.
"towns in yorkshire" Clue: TOWN OF TWO SMITHS Ans: Lockwood
Not sure if its right, but locksmith and woodsmith (american for carpenter), seemed logical to me.

Anyway, she's given me antoher clue, I don't get it:
Still on topic of Towns in Yorkshire
Clue: "good for boiling"
no length given as not from a crossword, just a list of cryptic q's

anyhelp much appreciated
