Times Quick Cryptic No 1399 by Breadman - Stormy petrel on a breadstick

A lovely puzzle from Breadman today with an interesting array of vocabulary and General Knowledge. It helps to know your Old English alphabet, Scottish towns, ancient highways, paper sizes and Arthurian legends, for example, but the answers are all readily gettable from the wordplay, I think. Well I managed not to get stuck, anyway, finishing in just under 4 1/2 minutes. Thank-you Breadman for the entertainment. How did you all get on?
