The tomb as it appears from the cattle gate. The black dot on the right of the monument is one of the hares that live inside the tomb.


When I got to this place, I asked a lady for the permission to walk into the field. She wasn't the landowner, but she told me that the owner wouldn't bother if people jump in and visit the tomb.
Anyway, if possible ask someone before entering any place!
The grass of the field hadn't been mowed for a long time and the monument was quite hidden in the grass.
The passage tomb is 100 metre northeast from the cattle gate at the entrance of the field. It's 12 metres long, it's about 2 metres wide and 1.60 metres tall.
The tomb is the home of a family of hares.
