Notes

A mound interpreted as either a Bronze Age bowl barrow, or a Medieval pillow mound. It measures 9.2 metres in diameter and up to 0.75 metres high. There is a slight ditch up to 0.25 metres in depth and 0.2 metres wide. A sarsen measuring 0.8 by 0.7 by 0.4 metres remains in the north portion of the ditch and is known as the Bloodstone. It was originally recorded by Grinsell as Edington 9. Scheduled.
