Pretty ruined church on top of a hill

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.

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

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.

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...
