Trethvy is the easily the closest to Zennor including an ante chamber stone , the one with the padstone .

It's not an anti-chamber stone, it's part of the main structure. LOOK at the top of it and the straight upright edge.

Why is not an ante-chamber stone ? it doesn't have to be separated from the main structure .

It doesn't belong there George. It has been 'borrowed' from the main structure and being used as a buttress. We've been here before. The anti-chamber idea is a myth at Trethevy. Stones are not where they should be.

That is only what you believe Roy , others think differently . If it were a buttress why remove it from the structure when it would make more sense to leave it and bring in a buttress from outside and set it like a buttress rather than at the angle the ante chmber is found . There are precedents for ante chamber stones including one nearby , where are the precedents for buttresses ?
