Hunebed D37 Valthe lies half a kilometre due south of the village of Valthe, just a handful of metres east of its twin, D36.

There is not a lot to say about this hunebed, which is very incomplete: of its original six capstones, two lie inside the passage grave, while the other four are missing altogether. For most of its length, the grave passage lies exposed and empty.

Despite this, the site is highly atmospheric and well worth the visit, surrounded by exquisite oak trees and expansive green fields. And of course, hunebed D36 lies only a few metres to the west, on the same site.
