|Description ||Western chamber part viewed from the NE in February 2009.|
13m by 4,5m chamber oriented East-West. Western part comparatively well preserved and covered by an unusually large capstone which is partly damaged by blasting attempts (two smaller parts of it broke off in the East). The eastern chamber part has preserved all orthostats, but is more disturbed and the two (probably) capstones are robbed except for three fragements.
The chamber is halfways embedded into the ground, the clear height is reduced to 1m and less.
It is locally known as “Heidenopfertisch “(translates as “Pagan sacrifice table”).
