This chambered entrance grave is found on the island of St. Mary's in the Isles of Scilly. It consists of a rectangular chamber and capstones on top. The exact date it was built is still unknown, but pottery found at the site suggests that it was likely built in the late Neolithic or early Bronze Age, circa 3000 to 2000 BCE. The site is currently maintained by English Heritage.
