nantes

Here is my best explanation:

'the french port' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'removed sod from sandstone' is the wordplay.
'removed' is an anagram indicator (moved again).
'from' indicates named letters should be taken away.
'sandstone' with 'sod' removed is 'anstne'.
'anstne' with letters rearranged gives 'NANTES'.

'in' acts as a link.
