|Description ||Oblique (due to tree growth) pole aerial view from NE showing the 18m long chamber and some remaining kerbstones of the oval enclosure that originally surrounded the (almost completely lost) covering barrow. The 3 westernmost capstones are destroyed by blasting attempts, two fragments are fallen into the chamber. The other 6 chamber capstones are almost in situ. Clear length appr. 16m (van Giffen, A.E., De hunebedden in Nederland, Utrecht 1925). Clear width rises from appr. 2m at the narrow sides to 2,8m at chambers center. The lateral passage has preserved 3 orthostats, a missing one is marked by a concrete implement. The stone foreground right and the 3 stones visible behind the chamber are partly fallen kerbstones, last remains of the oval enclosure. The earthwork is largely eroded and the drywalling removed.
