Tried to find out when the h was dropped.

Failed, but discovered the 19th century English word for the place (and why not also the cheese?) was Emmendale.

A wonderfully useless fact.

No, gph, the answer is Double Gloucester.

Okay, that might not be true. Well worked out.

I knew about rede, but it didn't help.

Æthelred the Unready is all about rede - the last Saxon King of England but two had a name, ÆthelRED, which means well-advised, and, as a result of his choice* of advisors, was nicknamed unræd, which means the opposite.

*initially, they were forced upon him, as he was a child when he came to the throne

Cheers duke. I’ll remember that advice bit. Couldn’t link it in.
Only saw the obvious, as in you can ‘redeem’ goods/vouchers etc.

Iron Duke 10:21 Thu Apr 9
Re: A plea to Charley Farley - New Crossword
That’s the one. Apparently, rede is an old word for advice. Them becomes ‘em. Rede ‘em.
