|Description ||Oblique pole aerial view from the NE. The easternmost capstone of the 10-capstone passage grave with oval enclosure is preserved in situ. Some stones were robbed in historic times and the earthwork is partly eroded/removed. This caused the remaining kerbstones to fall to the barrows' outside. Several are preserved, but partly covered. The chamber is largely filled with earth. |
Chamber 16m x 3m, enclosure 19m x 6m. 
"X" marks the location of the lateral passage at the center of the Southern long side as in most cases in this area.

| Waited for cloudy weather to avoid shades. Due to branches it is impossible to get the camera higher up without having the view largely obscured. Nevertheless nearly all megaliths are visible in this one. |
