|Description ||Central and western chamber part viewed from the North. With 1,83m (6ft) scale standing just beside the southern orthostat of capstone C2. Length of the massive 4-capstone chamber is approx. 11m. The width varies from 4m to 5m. The clear size is 8m x 3.|
The chamber is compararively well-preserved, but at least the complete dry-walling and all intermediate stones are robbed and the earthwork is largely removed. Probably as a result of this activities capstone C2 and C3 turned for approx. 20°, while the westernmost capstone C1 is preserved in situ. More unusually C1 is supported by 2 orthostats on the northern long-side.
