The half collapsed portal tomb and the kist right behind it, both seen from the southeast.


On the side of the N61, right outside the village of Lecarrow, there's this megalithic site that comprises a half collapsed portal tomb, a kist and two concentric stone circles that are about 50 metres further west. Sadly the monuments are in a private field with a high fence all around and two big warning signs that don't allow the access.
All the photos have been taken through the grid of the fence and the coordinates have been taken as close as possible to the entrance of the portal tomb.
The only thing I know for sure is that the entrance of the tomb faces east (80°), any other measurement was impossible.
