Looking at the tomb that is 70 metres from the road. The tomb is under that shrub right in the centre of the photo.


This overgrown court tomb is sitting on a low mound in a private field, behind two gates and an electrified fence, next to a barn and a house. I called at the house, but nobody was home, so I decided to go in anyway.
The tomb is about 70 metres northwest from the gate.

The monument is aligned to the west (270°) with the east end being overgrown. There are three large stones to form the north side of the court, and three much smaller and far apart stones on the south side. The tomb entrance is closed by a recumbent stone, the rest of the structure is invisible.
The tomb is about 4.75 metres long, and about 3.15 metres wide at the west end of the court.
