NB. The phase indication behind a measurement refers to the phasing of the instruments used. See the page The instruments used. The correction of the magnetic declination was obtained from the website of the NOAA [14.1].

Sprockhoff 965, 966 en 967 onderling

April 2006, declination correction -1° included, measuring phase II
N 52°46.85’ / E 007°49.23’

Sprockhoff 965 is a long barrow containing two small hunebeds. The long barrow is in a bad condition.
By lack of time the measurements were enforced in one direction only and in addation the angle measurements were dropped.
