|Description ||Overview from the West (Looking down from a height of 5,5m). 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 slightly turned. The easternmost capstone C4 is broken. It is not quite clear if explosives were used. Typical drill-holes like at several other sites were not detectable. Another orthostat just beside the lateral entrance at the centre of the southern longside probably belongs to an otherwise destroyed passage. No traces of an enclosure.
