Parking is nice and easy right at the bottom. Through a gate and up you climb. It is steep whichever way you go up and quite muddy (the car park is muddy too) so best take a change of shoes. Quite slippery too after a rain so take care. Views from the top are lovely and you can see Glastonbury... More

It's a hill. With a ruined church on top. Great views from the summit, good car parking at base. Easy walk to the top but avoid wet days, it will be slippery - no path.

If you fancy a walk up Burrow Mump on a clean English Sunny day go for it. The views are good over the Levels and you can imagine what the area around looked like in the dreadful floods of 2014.

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.

A pleasant attraction with lovely views of the surrounding area, access is by foot no disability access for obvious reasons. access all around the church is... More

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
