This wedge tomb lies hidden in a field boundary amongst huge bramble bushes and is
very difficult to access and is marked on the OS map as 'Dolmen'. It consists of a huge
roof stone, supported by two side slabs and a sill stone. Much of the remaining
structure is hidden under the thick bushes, making it difficult to define the out-line or
the orientation of the tomb.
