A good time had by the family the kids were shattered after climbing the mump. Great place to visit if you don't have a lot of time.

A short climb to this interesting folly which gives an amazing 360 degree view across the moors and levels of Somerset taking in the following hill ranges; Quantocks, Mendips, Poldens, the Blackdowns and of course Glastonbury Tor. A truly tranquil place to just sit and think

Driving past here on return from Wells/Glastonbury, decided to pull in and have a nosey. Little point in going over the history of it etc as previous reviewers have already done that, but the views from up top are really something else.also,couldn't help feeling sorry for the poor workers who had to get materials up there in the first place...

A Hidden gem of Somerset. A free attraction that gives 360 degree views of somerset, looking over to Hinkley point, Glastonbury Tor etc. Their is a hill to walk up to get there but it is worth it ( and doesnt take too long) parking is free Don't forget your camera

Wow, talk about a surprise – Burrow Mump delivers that – it transports you back to another era. Burrow Mump is halfway between Taunton and Glastonbury on the A361. The free National Trust car park is at the foot of the hill. At 79 ft. tall, it’s a quick climb (if you are able) up Burrow Mump (both words mean... More

Having driven past here many many times, I decided to pull in and have a look. What a great place, the climb up is as steep as it looks but boy is it worth it. The old building is worth a look and the views - stunning.

A really lovely spot to walk and take in the views of the Somerset levels. Sometimes there are sheep grazing so keep dogs on a lead. Small car park to park in as lovely walks lead off from here.

A small hill with an old ruin of a church on top (now a war memorial) - This Mump (Hill) overlooks the area of the Somerset Levels where Ling Alfred retreated to following the Viking sacking of Wessex - and where his fight back against started from. This is one of the six Somerset 360s - and rightly so as... More
