So sacred are these stones that, "it is generally averred hereabouts," writes Aubrey, "that pieces of them putt into their Wells, doe drive away the Toades, with which their wells are much infested, and this course they use still. It is also averred that no Magpye, Toade, or Snake was ever seen here."
Aubrey quoted in 'Jottings on some of the objects of interest in the Stonehenge Excursion' by Edward Stevens (1882), but I will find out the original source.
