|Description ||Passage grave, surrounded by remains of a Round Barrow.|
Chamber 3.3 x1,9 m, oriented NNE-SSW, consisting of 9 construction stones,
3 to N, 2 to E, 2 to S and 2 against W.
The chamber is almost pear-shaped, and covered by 2 large capstones.
On the west capstone seen 15-20 cupmarks, on the south-eastern part of the surface.
Passage towards SSE, it consists of 5 construction stones, 3 west and 2 east.
The passage is 0.5 to 0.7 m wide.
There is a lot of drywall preserved.
A very well preserved jęttestuekammer, located close to populated areas,
with relatively easy access.
| I like this one. Is the capstone broken, or is it really two parts leaning to each other?|

They have slightly different colors as well.
