Not the top 2 and like we said before Haroldstown is the most Zennor like in lots of ways, look at the old drawing of Zennor and it would be under the capstone and on top of the sidestones sealing the chamber, the sidestones have been worked to hold one, did you visit Zennor and Trethevy when you used to come down here?

I must have misunderstood .

Are you saying that something would have filled the gap at Zennor ?

I wouldn't necessarily remember but I'm pretty sure I din't visit either .

The top of the chamber sidestones are shaped to hold a stone, this would have been a capstone to the big chamber but below the big massive capstone, it would fit fine, the little chamber would also be sealed like this and if the whole thing was corbelled it would make another chamber on top of the other two, i'm not saying it was like this but is all works fine and all thats missing are the 2 smallest capstones and the little stones from the corbelling [they'd have gone for the wall running right by the site].
