|Description ||Oblique pole aerial view from the East-North-East. Length of the|
9-capstone passage grave is 15,6m (clear 13,8 m). 
This is one of only two currently known sites with cupmarked capstones in the Netherlands: There are several weathered cup-marks on capstones C4 and C5 (counting from the West).
The site was restored: the fallen capstones were placed back on their supports.
The chamber is halfway embedded into the ground (and/or remains of the covering oval barrow).
