|Description ||View along the northeastern half of the 21-23m* long passage (from the NE-end). Foreground showing the northeasternmost capstone. The location of the passage at the centre of the SE longside is marked "P".|
The chamber is deeply embedded into the ground. Only the tops of several chamber orthostats are visible.
The original number of chamber capstones possibly was 13*. At least eight are preserved largely in situ, some are fallen.
Nowadays it gets cleared from time to time, but two large trees partly hide it during growing season. By the time Sprockhoff et. al. examinded the site it was extremely overgrown so they had difficulties to inspect it.
*my estimate based on the usual symmetry
