This tomb is well hidden into the vegetation.


This portal tomb wasn't in our list, but we were in the area, we had a quick look at the map and saw it. Anyway we were going to give it up because the tomb is very well tucked away at the end of a field, in a hedgerow and under some trees.
The only reference we had was the power line above this field. From the cattle gate we walked to west for 65 metres.
The roots of the trees and hedges are threatening the monument. The entrance of the tomb faces east (70°).
The tomb is 1.75 metres tall, 1.50 metres wide and about 2.50 metres long. These measures are approximate because the vegetation didn't allow me to be more precise.
