Thanks Roy.

The sources I referred to earlier in the thread indicated that the backstone was "up" in 1824 but fallen by 1850. So if the fallen stone isn't the backstone, the original backstone must have been taken away at some point after 1824, leaving only the other stone that's still there inside the chamber.

No nothing has been removed that formed the structure (as far as I know anyway) Alken. They say there used to be a stone that was rolled up to the entrance as and when but there's no sign of that now.
