we like it!! It just has a feel about it - a blip sticking out from what would have been a sea of marshes and summer floods. Go and see....

After supper one night we decided to have a walk up Burrow Mump, it was only a couple of miles from where we were staying. Free car park at the bottom. Owned by The National Trust, but no entry fee. A bit of a hill to walk up but not too bad, you have to walk past the sheep in... More

We found Burrow Mump as we drove to Taunton. Beautiful little spot. Its a steep enough little climb but very worth it. It has stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The ruins are pretty. Worth a view. There is a little car park at the bottom making it easily accessible.

Did you know 'Burrow' and 'Mump' both translate as ' Hill'? Often dotted with sheep or cattle, the steep walk to the monument (St Michael's Church), on top of this natural hill is well worth the effort. Views across the Somerset Levels are fantastic, whether or not the land happens to be flooded at the time. There is a small... More

I am lucky mohave this right on my door step, I have climbed to the top lots of times in my life to admire the view, which is spectacular. I suspect that many people visiting the area have thought they have seen Glastonbury Tor when they have seen it however Glastonbury Tor is similar but on a much bigger scale.... More

I've been to the top of Burrow Mump many times and always to take in the views across the Somerset Levels. This is a very special spot when the levels are in flood, which happens pretty well every year around November to February. Flooding is quite normal here albeit last year witnessed flood levels which made the national news for... More

See title. It does have really nice views of Somerset as well. The small surrounding villages are also pretty and very picturesque. Worth the walk to the top.

Great views and an interesting vibe here. It was nice that there was no one else here when I visited, which made the visit extra tranquil. Shame to see a bit of litter and a few bottles laying around, as well as some carved graffiti, but nothing unexpected. Not a climb for the faint hearted but definitely worth a visit... More

A nice ruin of a church on top of a hill which is a reasonable climb (short but quite steep.) The 360% views over the somerset levels are well worth the effort though.
