The "little" ante-chamber isn't a proper chamber though, it's open to the air between the facade slabs. It's more like a false portal you have at some Severn-Cotswold tombs. There's no suggestion it was ever an enclosed burial chamber as far as I know.

The leaning stone that separates it from the proper chamber was presumably a supporting orthostat until the capstone slipped.
