The Tomb 17 is in a private field, behind a hedge. The house has a gate, but it was locked. Photo taken from the north.


This tomb is outside the area of the main group of tombs near the visitors' centre and is in a private field near the road.

This tomb is in the same property as Tomb 18, but on the other side of the house, behind the edge at the entrance of the building. Since the house seems uninhabited, I couldn't ask anybody for the permission to enter, so I had to look at it and take photos from the road. The grass was very high on the day of my visit, I think I counted 11 stones. The road cut away part of the circle, and one of the stones is now part of the shed next to the house. The circle has a low mound in it.
