14a Stares
Question Author
Dannyk13 - unfortunately for 14a the last letter appears to be E letter count appears to be ?T???E
4 Leeman Road - Railway Museum
4. Leeman Road
So where does the E in 14 come from?
14a goggle?
I think that any synonym of gawps should also end in an 's'.
Agreed Danny.
Question Author
I got the E from 13d.

13d. Tykes tell these tales about molars (5,5) I had HELLS TEETH
but if it's wrong and STARES is correct - the letter-count will be
?S?L? TEETH
I agree Danny. I think your answer is right.

presume it is an anagram of these tales, so something teeth, I've tried all the possibilities but cannot confirm any of them.
Sometimes a clue can be too obscure , in the end I'm going to randomly scatter the 5 possible letters around the s in position 2 and l in position 4 that I already have. I'm sure this won't help you !
Now seen answered elsewhere as

Assel Teeth
Scroll down to a numbered list.

Number 39

https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/YKS/YRY/YKS/FolkTalk/Chapter6
More likely to be ASSLE TEETH - https://archive.org/stream/glossaryofwordsp00dickrich/glossaryofwordsp00dickrich_djvu.txt which states Assel - teuth to be a molar or grinder.
No doubt various spellings, have seen 'Assil' on another reference page but of course that doesn't satisfy the anagram.
Yes, Mamyalynne, but I say more likely as both johnT and alidoc have L as the fourth letter.
True.
