“My mother’s version was that when Oliver Bray died at Denhill (Chipstable), Isabella moved to a house in High Street, Wiveliscombe i.e. 2-3 miles away. High Street is the hill which goes up into the centre of Wivey and was part of the main road through the town going East-West until 20 something years ago when the by-pass was put in. Mother had a story that very soon after the family moved to Fitzhead (Grandpa kept Denhill too), during one night, the horses broke out and made their way back to Chipstable – either Holwell or Denhill – the farm would have been horse-powered in the mid 1920’s,  Soon after, it came to light that our Great Granny in bed had heard horses galloping up Wivey High Street.” Kit Norrish
