Dolmen de la Couture

The Dolmen de la Couture (also called Dolmen von Langault) is located right next to a park and picnic area (called Bourdoisière) on the D19 road near the Loir River , north of Le Langault farm and the village of Saint-Hilaire-la-Gravelle near Châteaudun in the Loir-et-Cher department in France .

The pitted dolmen made of pudding stone has an approximately 3.0 × 2.0 m oval capstone that rests on three supporting stones, has another side stone and is open to the south, where stones may be missing. Access is missing and was probably in the east.

The excavator G. Launay found fragments of pottery and bones.

A local legend has it that fairies built the cave.
