  • It's like a mini Glastonbury tor. There seemed to be lots of walks and footpaths but as it was pouring with rain we went round the bottom of the mump and then climbed up it and down the back. Fantastic views. Very slippery in the wet so you need proper walking footwear. The information board was helpful too.
  • Lived in the area all my life. Been there too many times to count. Great views for miles around.
  • Nice attraction giving great views over the somerset levels. Free too!
  • 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.
  • 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.
