The small and compact tomb seen from the southeast.


This charming wedge tomb is not marked on the OS map, we saw it by chance while driving, so we stopped and had a look at it. The setting is idyllic, the tomb stands on the bank of a quiet stream with an ancient three spans stone bridge. The structure is small and compact, its capstone is massive with three side stones. The chamber is small and clean.
It's about 1.15 metres high, 1.65 metres wide and 1.80 metres long.
The entrance is aligned to the east (80°).
