The poor wedge tomb is at a crossroads which cut away part of it.


This court cairn has met an unglorious fate, a crossroads has been made here and it cut much of the tomb away.
A few stones stands on a ridge at the southwest corner of the crossroads, and to add disgrace to disgrace, they're very overgrown. There are even some trees coming out from its stones. I couldn't count the surviving stones, but I think they are 6 or 7. They're about 50 or 60 centimetres tall and are aligned over a length of about 7.50 metres on the southeast-northwest (130°-310°) axis.
