|Description ||The site viewed from the NE showing eastern and central part. Easternmost capstone (No. 10 counting from the West) at pictures' centre. |
Three kerbstones of the oval enclosure are visible foreground/left.
Some stones were robbed in historic times and the earthwork is partly eroded/removed. This caused the remaining kerbstones to fall to the barrows outside. Several are preserved, but partly covered. The chamber is largely filled with Earth.
Chamber 16m x 3m, enclosure 19m x 6m. (Reference: Sprockhoff et al.).
"X" marks the location of the lateral passage at the center of the Southern long side as in most cases in this area.
