|Description ||Close-up from the NW.|
The chamber is oriented East-West (NW-SE* according to the drawing in ) and consists of three orthostats on the long sides and one orthostat on each narrow side. While the orthostats were in situ*, the two (out of three) capstones were discovered beside* the chamber. The chamber was moved* to this location and the capstones were placed back.
At the original location traces of a round enclosure were detected.
*References are ambiguous.
