The entrance of the wedge tomb.


It seems that the road to get to this tomb is missing on the OS map.
The farmer was quite surprised to see us here and asked us how we managed to find the place, maybe he was sure that almost nobody could find it.
The monument is aligned east-west, more precisely the entrance faces west at 280°. What remains visible is the front side and most of the south side. The rest is all covered by brambles, ferns and weeds.
The tomb is 1.50 metres tall at the entrance, 2 metres wide and about 4 metres long.
The place is very nice and it is worth a visit!
