The scattered stones seen from the east-southeast.


The sorry remains of what once was a court tomb lie in a field, immediately behind a tiny and abandoned farm building along a local road.
Three stone still stand to witness the presence of a tomb, another one lies on the ground to the southeast. The three stones still standing form sort of a semi-circle. Two are close to each other on the south side of the arrangement, the one on the north side is a lonesome stone. The burial chamber would have been to the west of this poor set of stones, but sadly nothing else is visible today.
All the stones are in excess of 1 metre of height.
