Dowth henge (site Q) - Ground plan and other photographs

Ground plan of Site Q
Plan and sections of Dowth Site Q.

Site Q from the air

In the above picture, from "The Bend of the Boyne" by Geraldine Stout, the egg-shape of site Q can clearly be seen.

Site Q with arrows

The structure is well preserved, and on one side there are a lot of trees growing. An old roadway which formerly led to the nearby Dowth Hall passes around the southeast of the mound. The scale of the site can be seen in these photographs.
