  • A quiet place to chill, meditate and admire the view. Adequate car parking. Need some fitness to negotiate the hill but worth it when you're up there.
  • Taking a short cut detour on a return journey from Glastonbury, we were heading for Taunton to catch a train. The Sun was low in the sky, obscured by foreboding clouds. Cruising gracefully through the Somerset levels, now drenched and partially flooded reflecting the time of year. It was a misty, damp day, and really surprising to stumble over Burrow Mump. I say stumble but by no means is The Mump small enough to trip over, but in any case, tripping over this oddly named rarity just had to be done. As you can see from the photos, conquering this little gem is a rewarding trip. Perhaps, it must be said that, you'll need a decent set of shoes to make it to the top but if you try it'll be worth the effort. Known locally as 'Mini Glastonbury' and sporting significant similar features, it could be considered a little brother or sister but the relationship is endearingly intriguing. This would indeed be a place to run should the water levels rise but something bleak from the uppermost viewpoint interjects a contrasting view. This, after all is the land of myths and legends, a place where strength can be found from the stones. Still reading? Good, then you'll know I wasn't talking about The Rolling Stones in that last paragraph. If you happen to be near this place, just passing through or blessed with a little time to kill, you'd find a new perspective if you made the brief yet enchanting trip over Burrow Mump.
  • Historic church ruin, beautiful and great for a walk to the top. Quite steep so not suitable for everyone.
  • Great views, handy carpark with a dog poo bin (bonus). Great little walk for kids, adults and dogs. Sheep may be grazing if so keep dogs on lead.
  • Great views, & like Glastonbury on the ancient ley-lines.
