I suspect the hint is "Using the usual source of information..." Will give you some numbers.  ;)

Haven't checked though!

Checked... No numbers, but does give some answears.

Did you know, the Dave Allen sketch (the race to the graveyard between two funeral parties) was filmed there!  :D

Thanks @Bear and Ragged, been working on it this afternoon and got all the answers but no idea what to do with the text - or the elusive "special tool" it says you need.

Will be so close tomorrow and it fills a D/T space to hoping I solve it!
