Good point! Have added in Clayhidon but that's as much as we know I'm afraid. AC

There is only one ford at Clayhidon.

If the Gazette took the time to research it properly, if you take a map and Google street map you can clearly see its Hidewood Lane, looking south!

At least you got the in Somerset bit right, its just inside the Somerset/Devon border, the ford forms the boundary.

Now who do I send my consultancy bill to?
