|Description ||View East along the remains of the approx. 50m x 6m kerbed and chambered long-barrow. The chamber is located just east of barrows' center and visible near the center of the picture. Only the eastern end-stone and the adjacent orthostat of the northern long-side are preserved in situ. Hence the original size of the chamber is unknown. According to the size of the pit resulting from destruction it may have had 2 or 3 capstones. To the right (South): one of the very few remaining kerbstones is visible. While the kerbstones are largely robbed the earthwork is comparatively well preserved. Unfortunately the site is a bit overgrown and in a somewhat devastating state as a result of some ongoing forest work. Hopefully they will clear it a bit. May 2010|
