Location slightly doubtful: I've placed this where I remember it, which fits in with Bruno Marc's description in Dolmens et Menhirs en Languedoc et Roussillon (which is how I found it) so I'd have thought it must be right. It also looks about right on Googlemaps. However, it may be worth knowing that puts it at the other end of the village on the other side (south) of the road.

Access: Visible from the road across a field just past the last buildings of the little village of Le Barral. Bruno Marc & I reckon it's on the eastern edge of the village, to the north of the road. Seems to be on private property with no obvious access.

A ruined but easily recognisable little dolmen built into a field wall. I didn't try to approach it (see above) but just used a big lens....
