About 2 days and no guesses, I seriously doubt I've set something to flummox you lot! Anyway, I'll offer a small clue: (4,4)

And party, as in rave, without direction (right, or R) is ave leaving smooc ave.. A simple shuffle of a letter produces the result. Considering some of the howlers I've seen in this thread it ain't that bad, not quite crossword friendly but not totally obtuse, at least not in my eyes!  :doubt:

Perhaps it's time to retire this thread to the same as wezzit - look at but no longer waste my time withreply to..  :shrug:

Drat Dunc that's the only one I got! Though I've never heard of smoo cave so though it must be something else.

Correct Grahams, the letters are of "Sleets Beck Pot" but they are "Out" of order, geddit? ::)

So near that all I can do without giving it away is: 4, 3 letters. The clue works just as well without the word 'carefully'.

O.K., let someone else have a go before I have another "shot in the dark", they might at least know where you are thinking of, I don't like guessing! ;)
