This tomb is a little tricky to locate, and even when you enter the field in which it is situated, it is not immediately evident as it is completely overgrown with trees and shrubs. At first glance there appears to be little of the tomb remaining but as you scramble through the undergrowth and have a look around, it is quite surprisingly well preserved. I would love to see this tomb cleared of vegetation to get a good look, as it is quite large and this type of tomb is very rare in this part of the country. Posted by Alan Lee
