Carn Kenidjack is a hill in Tregeseal. It is covered in megaliths with a rocky outcrop on the summit.
Also known as “The Hooting Cairn” local legend refers to these rocks and the sound of the wind blowing through their unusual shape.
The moorland that surrounds Carn Kenidjack is known as the Gump and it is on the Carn where you can find the Tregeseal Stone Circle.
Considered a haunted place, the Carn is most famous for a tale told by two miners, who returning home one night, witnessed a wrestling match near the Carn which was presided over by the Devil.
