|Description ||The skeleton of the 23,5m passage grave viewed from the NW. Chamber at least halfways embedded into remains of its eroded barrow.|
As usual the neolithic builders (TBK) focussed on chambers' interior as they never had a view like this. So the flat sides of the granite erratics face towards chambers' inside.
Nine out of 11 chamber capstones are preserved. Enclosure was approximately 29m by 10m, but is robbed except for one (visible to the left in this picture) and possibly a second stone in the west.
