Two Bronze Age bell barrows on Idmiston Down, listed by Grinsell as Idmiston 10 and Idmiston 11. Excavations in Idmiston 11 recorded Bronze Age pottery which is now in Salisbury Museum. Colt Hoare shows three other barrows within the vicinity. Field investigations in 1970 found the barrows surviving as earthworks between 1.8m and 2.7 metres in height. The remains of a possible bowl barrow, 0.2 metres high was also recorded.
