represented by two entrance stones and an axial stone, measuring 2m to 1m in height,
1.6m to 1.1m in width and 0.6m to 0.4m in depth. The two prostrate slabs on the

which is aligned NE-SW, is 14m. Within circle are a group of four Boulder Burials.
Three support stones are visible beneath the cover-stone of the north boulder burial
