|Description ||The passage grave viewed from the east. Chamber appr. 19m by 3m (ends)/4m (centre). Oval enclosure appr. 23m by 10m. |
The megalithic skeleton is almost completely preserved, but the capstone are fallen as as a result of historic destruction attempts (removal of drywalling).
Many thanks to S.Mahlstedt, B.Rothmann and S.Mahlstede who recently cleared the site from all the massive undergrowth. Now it is possibly to see all remaining enclosure stones. Nevertheless it still is impossible to get a real aerial view as several trees still are very close.
The whole ensemble is deeply embedded into the eroded remains of the barrow.
