The entrance of the portal tomb seen from the east.


This nice and squat portal tomb is on the other side of a stream, and the stream is beyond a locked cattle gate. Across the stream is a small concrete bridge.
The tomb is on a ridge above the stream and the ground is very wet and muddy.
The capstone is really huge, it's almost frightening. The monument is 2.50 metres tall and wide, and 4 metres long, it faces east-southeast.
Since the tomb is on a ridge and a tree grows very close to the capstone and, to add more, the surrounding area is overgrown, taking photos of the monument from every angle is impossible.
