Triplet No. 19 : Find the magic letter that can change three words into three different ones.
Triplet No. 19

FOR each group of three words, find one letter (except final S) that can be added to all three words to produce three new words.

When you have finished, rearrange your letters to give the name of a Dorsetshire town.

Find one letter that will change all three words into three new ones. For example, add L to ATE, RIFE, GROW to get LATE, RIFLE, GROWL.

The added letter may be S (e.g. PAT → PAST), but it won’t be a plural or third person singular (like CAT → CATS or ASK → ASKS).

Type your letter into the square at the left-hand side of each group of three words. Click the magnifying glass () to see the answer for one group of words.

When you have found all your letters, you will see an anagram at the foot of your puzzle. See if you can solve it.

Near the pier of this seaside town on the south coast is a tower that originally stood at the southern end of London Bridge. It was built in 1854 in honour of the Duke of Wellington as a clock tower, but kept poor time (a serious deficiency in a clock) so the tower, minus the clock, was relocated. Solve the puzzle to find the name of the town.
