A place of historic interest owned by the National Trust. Alfred the Great (allegedly) hid and burned the cakes, but sadly there's no evidence it happened here. It's a steep hill with a ruined church on top and excellent views of the amazing surrounding countryside....More

Lived locally for many years and never ventured up before, took the children with a picnic, and what a delight the views were fantastic and kids played for ever around the top.

Great views of the levels and a great pub nearby too! It is however a steep climb to the top. Easy parking at the bottom.

We always use Burrow Mump as a travel point when out cycling. We can cycle to the top by circling the route up to eliminate some of the steep bits. Once you reach the top the views are fantastic.

If you can manage the climb to the top of Burrow Mump, you'll be rewarded with some of the best views across the Somerset levels. This place is so photogenic with the ruins of the chapel providing a perfect frame for the stunning surroundings.

This National Trust property towers, no pun intended, above Burrowbridge on the Somerset levels. You need to be fit and sure footed to tackle the paths to the top but the view is a worthwhile reward. Sheep are often grazing so don't bring a dog...More

This is a really cool find. We had lunch at The George Inn in Middlezoy which was excellent and then walked the roughly 2.5 walk to the mump. It was a really nice walk, easy but interesting scenery and the mump would be fun for...More
