(ST 68585920). The capstone and two supporting stone of a burial chamber were noted by Skinner, before March 1821, 20 yards from the back gate of Tunley Farm, on the highest point to the east of Tunley Camp, and close to the road to Timsbury (but Priston must be meant). By June the same year the capstone and one of the supporting stones had been broken up for road mending and the surviving stone, which measured 6 ft x 2 ft, had been incorporated into a corner of the farm court wall. "Search and enquiry at the farm were both fruitless" O G S Crawford 1927.
