Wateresk, county Down

J 394 344 - Sheet 29

Nearest village: Dundrum

The Slidderyford Dolmen looks very different from even slightly-different angles.
Its granite capstone is 3 metres long by 1 thick, resting on three support-stones, the tallest being 1.8 metres high. The capstone fits very neatly into a concavity in the smaller portal-stone, echoing other megaliths in South Down. The chamber is no longer definable.
