Hertfordshire Puddingstone, Lee, Buckinghamshire
These puddingstones are on the village green outside the Cock and Rabbit public house.

Hertfordshire puddingstone is a conglomerate sedimentary rock composed of rounded flint pebbles cemented together by a younger matrix of silica quartz. The distinctive rock is largely confined to the English county of Hertfordshire, and despite a superficial similarity to concrete, is entirely natural. Like other puddingstones, it derives its name from the manner in which the embedded flints resemble the plums in a Christmas pudding.

Lee - usually referred to as 'The Lee' - is an attractive village in the Chiltern Hills, about 2 miles north east of Great Missenden and 3 miles south east of Wendover. The village name is Anglo Saxon in origin, meaning 'woodland clearing'. The village church of St John the Baptist is unusual in that it consists of two buildings: the ancient chapel of ease built in the 12th century, which includes a window depicting Oliver Cromwell and John Hampden as 'champions of liberty', and the more modern Victorian red brick church built in 1867.
