This is how you see the tomb from above while you approach the last timber gate.


This is a beautiful portal tomb!
It's signposted close to the church. The lane is closed by a timber gate after 15 metres. Past the gate you walk for 90 metres, turn right after the fence and walk along the barbed wire up to the point where it's damaged. Cross the barbed wire, walk for 150 metres, go through two small timber gates and the sign that warns you this is a private land, and down the field you see the portal tomb.
It is 3 metres tall, 2.50 metres long and 1.70 metres wide. The entrance to the burial chamber faces north.
