The portal tomb seen from the southwest. The red and yellow stick is 1 metre long, for scale.


This wonderful portal tomb is on a private land. I rang the door of the nearest house and a lovely lady came out to tell me that she wasn't the owner, but she also told me that no permission is required to visit it. From the gate on the road we walked south for 135 metres, then we crossed a second gate and after 35 metres we found the monument.
It's absolutely amazing and imposing!
The entrance of the tomb faces east-southeast (110°).
The monument is 4 metres of length, 3.20 metres of height and 2.60 metres of width.
While we were visiting the site it started pouring rain and we had to use the tomb as a shelter.
