Doubt it VBB. Take a look at the stone at the corner of Pewsey Church -[...]nd_wiltshire_pewsey_church.htm - it's a real beauty (smooth reddish surface) and a recumbent SS if ever I saw one. If it was just used as foundation rubble why leave it undressed and protruding in such a way when it would have been quite easy to cut and neatly incorporate it into the church foundations proper.

A second stone under the third buttress from the corner is also visible.
