Stead (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lieu

'stead' is the definition.
(I know that stead can be written as lieu)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for lieu that I've seen before include "Stead - place" , "The substitute" , "Place - position" , "In ... of; in exchange for" , "In - of means instead of" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sunday Times, the Penny Press, The Mirror and the King Feature Syndicate.
