|Description ||There are three megalithic tombs at the northern border of the 'Gowenser Gehege'. |
The southern of those three is a long chamber in NS direction, surrounded by an unusual horseshoe shaped stone circle.
The chamber consisted of six pairs of orthostats (Joche).
On the west side four of them are still in place, the southern sixth has fallen into the chamber. The eastern six are all there, just one is tilted.
Three of the former capstones, or the remains of them, are there outside the chamber. Three capstones, the fifth of the west side and the southern orthostat are missing.
Size of the chamber 7m x 1.8m.
