This is what you see when you climb up the low hill. Seen from the southeast.


The heavy rain was going to make me give up, but I tried anyway. On the cattle gate that grants access to the field there's a sign that reads "View at your own risk". From here I walked west for 65 metres and with a rise of about 10 metres.
The tomb is nice and tidy.
It's a little longer than 7 metres, it's about 2.50 metres wide and 1.50 metres tall. The entrance faces southwest and at the south corner of the tomb, on the ground, there's a round stone with a hole punched in the centre, like it was a wheel or a grindstone.
