The passage tomb seen from the southeast.


The first time we were here, some years ago, the passage tomb was in a field, but some angry dogs kept us away from the place. This time no dog was around, but the place had a completely different aspect. The field was a building site for a group of residential houses and I think that very soon this tomb will be just a pile of stones in front of the car park.
The tomb is 4 metres long and 1.50 metres wide. The tallest stone measures just 80 centimetres in height. The monument is aligned northwest-southeast.
The last stone to north is one step away from falling into the sea, and I think it won't be long before the whole tomb will disappear on the shore beneath.
