This big boulder of Sneglesten is found way out on a field outside Gundsømagle. It is part of a dolmen, where it forms the roof. It is most accessible from the little gravel parking lot at Gundsømagle Parkvej, opposite Fiskergårdsvej. From here, it is 450 metres west-north-west, behind the pond.

Location: Gundsømagle Parkvej, 4000 Roskilde.
GPS: 55°44'23.0"N 12°08'14.1"E  /  55.739728, 12.137262

Size: 1,4 metres high, 2,0 metres wide and 3,2 meters long. It is 9,9 metres in circumference.

Meaning of the name: I have not been able to find a name for the dolmen, but when I visited the sight, the boulder was covered in hundreds of Grove snail ;Cepaea nemoralis. I then took the liberty to name it name it "Snailrock" in Danish.

Material: Red Granite.

Origin: Sweden.

Legend: None I have been able to find.
