What a view after the climb

Tremendous views of the levels. You can see why the newsmen use it to film and photograph the floods when they happen.

An excellent view to be had from the top of the mound - and the building is interesting too. There are a number of really lovely walks of varying lengths which can begin and end at the car park beneath the mound.

This isn't as high as Glastonbury tor, but from the top you can see it!! It has its own car park which is good. No steps to the top just natural ones made from mud and grass which was a little slippery even with wellies on. Great views from the top though. We took our dog and he loved it

Incredible views over the levels and a free car park! However you need to be pretty fit to get up there

Very nice place to visit. Really interesting and pretty, big car park so no problem parking, would suggest checking out other places whilst you're there to make the journey worth it

Lovely views after you have made the climb. Well worth a visit to this ancient unfinished church. The King Alfred pub is on hand to provide refreshment, should you need it.

Great climb to the top of this iconic 'bump' reveals the ancient remains of this church with the most fantastic views across the Somerset levels, well worth the effort

Only try this if you are fit Excellent view from the top. Hard to imagine the devastation cause by the 2015 floods The flood line can be seen on the depth Guage near the bridge

Just a mound with a small ruined chapel but the climb rewards you with 360 degree view of Somerset and some atmospheric photos if you wait for the sun to go down. If you're lucky you may be serenaded by one of the locals might be practicing the banjo in the car park.
