The Judith Stone is a large stone situated in a field between Lubenham, in Leicestershire, and East Farndon, in Northamptonshire. It is not known exactly how the stone got its name, but it is thought that it may have been used as a marker for the edge of land owned by the Countess Judith, the niece of William the Conqueror.

The field the Judith Stone is located in shows strong signs of Ridge and Furrow, the medieval farming method commonly used in shared fields before enclosure in the 18th century. Ridge and furrow was the result of many years of ploughing the same strip of land with a non-reversible plough.
