Origin: ?

Legend: It might be another of Kullemanden; the troll who lives on Kulleberga in Sweden, who hated the sound of church bells. Many years ago he was so angry that he broke all boulders of Kulleberga and threw them at Nødebo Church to stop bell sound. The first roll was too short, and the stone struck close to the place where now the forest school is located. The next throw went west on the church with killing at Lille Gribsø. The third wing of the church and landed at Egelund. Since the fourth throw did not reach beyond the "Tumlingevang", he gave up his endeavor, and the bell can still be heard.
