Kenidjack Castle

Cliff Fort


They say the devil has all the best tunes...Iron Age man had all the best forts

Although little remains on Kenidjack headland except three banks on either side of the narrow istmus it is easy to see how this place could easily be defended. Two ridges of rock run along its crest and according to Robin Payne in "The Romance of the Stones" it may have been used in the Bronze Age as a natural defence.

The area all around is heavily mined and tin streaming would have been going on in the valley below to the west since those far off days.

Forget Lands End...come here to experience the end of the world!

Oh...and if you come in the spring you may get to see the peregrins.
