Edington, Wiltshire

Edington is a small village and civil parish in Wiltshire, England, about five miles east of Westbury. The parish includes two principal settlements, Edington village and Tinhead, which lies between the main village and Coulston and contains the parish's only surviving public house, Three Daggers.
