A stone trough lies near an outbuilding at Standon at SX53188281. It was probably moved to this position from elsewhere in the farmyard as it appears to have been abandoned here. It is sub-square with round corners and measures a maximum 1.1 metres by 0.9 metres and 0.46 metres thick. The trough is 0.25 metres deep and there is a slight knotch on one of the sides.
