The only photo that I have of this tomb. Taken looking towards the northeast from the road.


This portal tomb is in a private field where I couldn't enter because of a group of calves who showed to be not very friendly.
I took a photo from the road. It shows the rear side of the portal tomb. The capstone is missing.
The red dot on the OS map is in the wrong position. According to the map the tomb should be next to the road. Actually it's 40 metres or so from the road, and up the low hill.

UPDATE: June 9th, 2019 - I tried another visit to this portal tomb, but again the field had sheep inside and the access was impossible. I took a few photos from different angles. The landowner told me it isn't worth the effort to walk through the field because it's just a pile of rock.
The entrance is aligned to the northeast (65°).

The first photo in this page is from the visit in 2006, the remaining four photos are from the visit in 2019.
