I'd say not, during most time periods, readily available stone would probably have been broken up and carted off and used in your local house/barn/field wall etc....

At Bryn Celli Ddu on Anglesey, there was apparently another whole tomb and a couple of portal stones nearby that were demolished over time, and used to build a field wall. Ditto Avebury, I believe I read that a fair amount of the sarsens were broken up and went to buildings etc...
