Helpmate in 7

This week’s problem is a longer helpmate, a genre we have not featured for some time. With only a king and bishop to work with, White clearly needs to rely on the black pieces to block off their own monarch's flights. Older hands will probably guess the main feature of the solution.

Any comments or questions on this problem should be addressed to Steve Giddins, our Librarian and Archivist, using the 'Contact' item in the menu on the left.
