Hamish, submit the photo to the Lyneham Long Barrow page and put the other details in the caption as it's so close. Interesting thanks.

I've known about this stone for a few years, Should I make a site page for it? not sure whether this is like an ancient stone or not.
This is close to Lyneham Long Barrow which is about 130 metres to the east.
Size (as it is currently lying):
1.96 metres long
0.85 metres wide
0.67 metres high
Grid Reference: SP 29625 21101 (accurate to within 5metres)
The stone is on a wide field boundary
This stone is much larger the others in the vicinity.
At present, although probably on its side, it is in the ground rather than on top of the ground.
Lots of large pieces of stone upto 1 metre in any direction have been ploughed up from the arable field to the west of this stone (mostly these seem to be on top of the ground)
historically there has been quarrying in the area
this stone is not known at any sources that I can find
