So, just so I'm clear, you're saying the backstone fell in 1830/40, then was removed from site. And that the fallen stone inside the chamber is actually a different stone (that was there all along)?

No, I'm not saying that. I have no idea when the original backstone fell datewise. All the stones present (8) are still the originals just some in different positions. No more have been involved (as far as I am aware. Intriguing isn't it.
Next time you're down in Cornwall Alken I'll visit the quoit with you as it's easy to explain on site.
