|Description ||View along the chambered and kerbed long-barrow. |
It is oriented NW-SE. The length was at least 22m. Width is approx. 6m.
Most of the kerbstones especially in the NW most probably are robbed. Some remained, but are largely covered and/or fallen as the earthwork is heavily eroded. Furthermore some stones from field clearance were obviously placed on top and beside the long-barrow.
In contrast the parallel oriented chamber near barrows centre is very well preserved and still partly embedded into the barrow. The inside is lit. Something going on there.
