This big boulder of Avnsøgård is found next to the little gravelroad Bjergsted Bakker, 55 meters from the road Ringholm, close to the old church Aunsø. Further out the road, eight more boulders are found while excavating gravel in the area. When I found it in 2019, it was completely covered in wild roses, blackberries and stinging nettles. Despite is is only a few meters from the road, it is not visible due to some big bushes. In 2021, the area was cleaned and the boulder exposed.
