|Description ||6m wide (4m clear) eastern chamber end. There were two orthostats at the Eastern chamber end (This is more rare). |
One of these is fallen, the other (to the left in the picture) still supports the very large capstone C6. The orthostat visible in the background is S6
Although other ground plans are more common there are several funnel beaker sites where trapezoidal chambers can be found. Nevertheless this trapezoidal chamber is more unusual as the width difference of the both narrow ends is unusually large. Width in the west is only 3m (clear: 1,6m), while the chamber continuously broadens in the East up to a width of nearly 6m (clear: 3,8m).
