|Description ||From the SE. Passage grave inside 30m by 8m oval enclosure which is partly well preserved, partly missing. The chamber probably had 15 capstones, 7 survived the historic destruction attempts. Total length of chamber is 25m. As the western part has a slightly different orientation (almost WNW-ESE, while the rest of the chamber is oriented NW-SE) it is believed the site was built in two different periods.|
Unless the site sign claims the western end was added later this is against all chronology. If a part was added later than the opposite is far more likely: a small five capstone chamber was enlarged and reused as western quarter of a passage grave.
