|Description ||The 8 capstone chamber viewed from the SW. Capstone C1 (counting from the West) is preserved in situ and visible to the left. The site was abused as a quarry in historic times. C2 and C6 are fallen, C5 turned but still rests on its orthostats. It is visible to the right in this picture. The other 4 capstones are robbed as well as probably all kerbstones of the oval enclosure. As chambers' central section is heavily damaged it is impossible to determine the chamber type (without excavation). Most probably it was a passage grave. |
