I visited this site on a classic early spring evening with a low setting sun in a cloudless sky and a hot air balloon drifting aimlessly by. I approached the stone by following the footpath from the south east corner of Sandford Brake electrical substation and entering the copse from the footpath atits north west edge and crossing a small wooden step bridge just in front of the stone.
The stone is becoming ever more overgrown and while it is still quite easy to spot at the moment I can see it becoming quite easily obscured in a couple of years.
This stone is situated adjacent to a footpath at the north west edge of a copse between Sandford Brake electrical substation & B480 Watlington road.
It is moss covered standing on an angle of approx 60-70 degrees & is approximately 2m long by 1m high 0.2m thick. It's shape is fairly rectangular although there are no crisp edges; indicating the appearance is certainly very old.
This stone has several interesting features in the surrounding area including a Roman Road to the west & is not far from the Bladon Brook spring source.
