|Description ||Aerial view from the South-west. The barrow containing the chamber was overgrown by moorland like several other sites in this area and first discovered in the early 20th century. Hence the site survived the 19th century when approximately 90% of the megalithic monuments where completely destroyed. The tomb was excavated by K.H. Jacob-(Friesen). According to his research the chamber measures 6m by 3,5m (clear: 4,5m by 1,5m -2m). The stone marked “E” in this picture probably was the entrance stone. June 2010|
