This fragmentary wedge-tomb consists of two long side slabs with a back-stone at the east end. Another large stone lies near the west end. This may have been a capstone. The tomb is about 3.5m long by 3m wide.



The interior of the chamber is filled with grassed-over rubble. A mature hawthorn tree overshadows the tomb near the NW corner.
