Worth visiting and great view.

Love visiting here - not too high that you have a coronary, but a great view of the Somerset Levels and beyond from the top. Well worth the short climb.

Lovely cycle run from Bridgwater along the river. Good hike up the hill and a nice drink in the pub nearby. You can then cycle back a different route.

The climb isn't as bad as it looks, but probably better going on a relatively dry day as it can get very slippery. For those interested in leylines, it is on a major one, known as the Michael-Mary line and mentioned in Hamish Miller's book The Sun and the Serpent. We had a lovely afternoon up there once with a...

Park at the car park at the base of the Mump and after a short walk to the top absorb the beautiful scenary. A panorama of the Somerset Levels. From the top you can experience the breathtaking beauty of the lovely level countryside surrounding you and come to realise fully why it was so painful for those living locally when... More

If you're next to the Mump and able don't be lazy. Climb to the top and you will be rewarded with fantastic panoramic views. We were here about a year after the flooding and coming up here gives one a real sense of the scale of the devastation.

Stunning views and only a short walk to the top! Great to go up on a sunny day and take in the fresh air. You can see for miles and it is great in all seasons. There is a car park to leave your car and a bike stand for bikes, all round a great place to visit.

Go on, up you go! Behold the beautiful Somerset levels... On a clear day you can see Glastonbury Tor. This is a great short little jaunt up the hill, and it might be a tad windy but it's worth it!

Although only a small hill, Burrow Mump stands out as it is surrounded by the flat expanse of the Somerset Levels. It was beside this hill that the world watched on as the surrounding countryside was engulfed in a vast flood of Biblical proportions in February 2014. The views are stunning! The climb to the Church ruins at the top... More

Getting to burrow mump is half the fun, travelling across the Somerset levels is amazing. When you arive at the mump "I love saying mump" you have a short climb upto the church and the rewarding views. If your travelling past or near burrow mump, put it on your "visit list" you won't be disappointed.
