Greengraves, county Down: "The Kempe Stones"
J 445 736 - Sheet 15
Nearest town: Newtownards
The picture shows the common method of roofing portal-tombs with two capstones,
a large one supported at the rear by a smaller one which rests on the backstone of the chamber.
This tomb also has a fine door-stone typically reminiscent of the traditional Irish 'half-door'
which has now disappeared along with the cottages which had them.
