|Description ||View West from near the eastern end. Foreground right: capstone C12 (counting from the West) |
Deeply embedded remains of a 24m long passage-grave (funnel-beaker western group, overlength Emsland/Drenthe- chamber) with partly well preserved oval enclosure measuring appr. 31m x 9,5m . Oriented W-E. Eleven (out of 14) capstones are partly preserved. Chambers' eastern part is well preserved. The more damaged western part slightly varies from the status during Sprockhoff's examination in 1926. Some stones seem to be missing/overgrown while others may have become uncovered since then or are field clearance.
Site is only very shortly accessible outside growing season.
