Go on and on in given order travelling north (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

drone

Here is my best explanation:

'go on and on' is the definition.

'in given order travelling north' is the subsidiary indication.

'in' indicates a hidden word.

'travelling north' says the letters should be written in reverse (in a down clue, letters go up).

'enord' can be found hidden inside 'given order'.

'enord' written backwards gives 'drone'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for drone that I've seen before include "he gives us a buzz", "Remote controlled aircraft", "Buzzing sound", "Talk boringly; male bee", "RPV", "Speak long and tediously", "Monotone", "Aeroplane", "Male honey bee, an idler" and "Male honeybee".)
