Short, relatively steep climb to the top. The ruined church at the top is a bit of a let down - not as big as you might expect from the road, and restricted access. However, the views in all directions are fantastic, especially at sunrise...More

Some of the most beautiful countryside I know opens up when you look down from this quaint 'bump' in the landscape. For a short hike uphill the reward is a 360 degree vantage over the Levels and beyond.

A mini Glastonbury Tor with stunning views across the somerset levels. Easy parking, short walk to the top and no crowds. Try it at sunset on a sunny day or early morning before the mist has gone. Stunning! I've been here several times

It is fairly steep to walk up to the top but well worth it for a 360 view. You can't enter the church ruins.

My family & I stayed in Somerset in November and we drove past this steep hill with a ruin on top so later in the week we decided to drive back there and check it out. This 'Barrow Mump' has interesting history and has amazing...More
