|Description ||Centre: capstone C4. Left: capstone C3. Foreground: fallen (torn apart) orthostat SE3. |
The massive 8 capstone chamber measured 19m by 5m (Clear size was 17 x 3m, Reference: Sprockhoff et al.). The orthostats of the NW long-side are almost in situ while on the opposite site they are torn out of place except for one. As a result all capstones collapsed into the chamber. Three capstones are damaged by blasting attempts. The site was rather overgrown in 1989, but a local club cares for it now.
