The entrance of the tomb.


This wonderful wedge tomb would be really wonderful if it wasn't buried by the brambles and ferns.
It's 100 metres south from the cattle gate that closes the private land.
The tomb is 4.10 metres long, 2.80 metres wide and 1.20 metres tall. The entrance faces west (270°).
The burial chamber is delimited by a double walling and it's coverd by two roofstones, one of which is very long.
Taking photos of this monument was hard due to the thick vegetation around it and because the fence on the west side was too close to the stones.
