Lost and forlorn in a hedge and ditch are these sad remains of a wedge tomb. I was brought up here by the farmer who owns the land and who has a keen interest in all the historic and pre-historic features of his area.
There's not much left to see. Two stones are set into the ground with the remainder tossed about in a jumble. The whole structure measures just 6.5 metres by about a metre and a half.
