Do you have a link to JB's too Roy ?


Here it is Geoff. The numbers are mine so that the stones are easier to identify in the book

Thanks Roy.
In JB's plan your stone #6 is much longer than in Dymonds. Which one is correct ?


A quickie clue before I disappear...stone 6 is the identical width height and shape as stone 3. Also look at what is on the angled top of stone 6. That's all your having from me now...go look :-)



Hmmm, i can see a few possibilities but what strikes me most is the front blocking/supporting stone looks wrong. like it was added later and the capstone raised, i'm guessing your thinking something similar and stones 3,4,5 and six were supporting stones as they have the correct angles and maybe stone 6 tennons ? It's real hard not having seen the structure in the flesh.
