The tomb seen from the east.


We drove up a lane that ended in a lorries parking area. There was a house as well, but nobody was in. From here we walked along a unpaved and muddy track for 12 minutes and 945 metres with a rise of about 20 metres and we met a farmer who gave us the directions for this portal tomb on the other side of the low hill.
The tomb is under the only tree in the whole hay field.
I had forgotten my red and yellow stick in the car, but it was too far to go back and fetch it so I had to estimate the dimensions of the monument.
It's about 2.20 metres tall, 2.70 metres long and 1.70 metres wide.
The entrance faces north.
