|Description ||Roquefort allée couverte is a very big allée-couverte, for round here, still contained mostly within its long mound, but in a fairly ruinous condition. Many big trees are growing on it, with their roots digging in to the remains.
Unfortunately several of these trees were blown down in the big storm of 19XX, substantially damaging the once fine chamber, which is 18 metres in length, with 22 support stones. Only 4 capstones now remain in place.
These megalithic remains are on very private land and I was privileged to be shown around them. A visit should not be attempted without permission.|
