The dolmen, which unlike the dolmen of Santoche does not belong to the Schwörstadt type widespread in this region, but gave its name to a group of its own, consisted of an approximately 2.4 m wide and 5.0 m long, rectangular chamber with an anteroom, that consisted of the two side walls, the end and the front panel with the access in the east and the disappeared ceiling panel. The collapsed side walls consist of one panel on the right and two panels on the left. The height of the chamber was about 0.9 m.
