|Description ||Oblique aerial view from the East (taken June 2010). Heavily damaged by historic destruction attempts, but still an interesting site.|
The eastern end of the possible 5 capstone chamber is almost completely robbed and destroyed. Only a larger (F) and s smaller fragments of partly destroyed stones remained the large (F) showing toolmarks, while the western part is partly preserved.
In situ are 4 orthostats: the western chamber endstone (W), three orthostats of the southern long-side (S1, fragment of S2 and S3). N3 is slightly out of place. Three stones marked (X) could not be attributed. The westernmost capstone (C1) is moved to the North and its neighbour C2 turned it collapsed into the chamber as its northern support is robbed. The other (C3, C4, C5) capstones are missing. There are more megalithic stones probably originating from the tomb moved towards the outside of the oval barrow. Delightful ambience, but many ticks around here.
