|Description ||Round Barrow with Burial Chamber.|
Earth mound with uneven surface, measuring 0.60 x 7-9 m.
At the foot seen the top of four kerb stones at east,
one large and three small against NW.
The chamber is elongated four-sided in WNW-ESE, 2.25 x 0.60 m
(width measured at the top), height outside until 0.50 m, inside a little more,
the real depth of chamber is estimated to approx. 1 m.
The chamber got two stones in each long side, a stone of west and
a threshold stone in the east approx. 0.50 m lower than the other stones.
The chamber was covered with two capstones, one of which is now leaned
north on the chamber, the second NW outside the chamber.
Capstones sizes 1.50 x 1.05 x 0.50 m and 1.60 x 1 x ca . 0.40 m.
During visit in 7-2010 the chamber was completely overgrown
in a way that it was almost invisible. Very sad, because a path leads
through a beautiful forest right to it, located very near to forests border.
From this location you have a nice view down to the sea.
