Burrow Mump (hill hill)
The "mump" is an outcrop of Kuper Marl near the confluence of the rivers Tone and Parrett on the Somerset Levels. A chapel dedicated to St Michael was built on the top in the early 13th century and subsequently rebuilt several times. An attempt to re-build on a smaller scale in 1793 failed through lack of funds and in 1838 a church was built at the foot of the hill instead. The ruin bears a plaque which reads "This hill was given to the National Trust by Alexander Gould Barrett that the men & women of Somerset who died serving their country in the Second World War may be remembered here in time to come". The mump was also used by Royalist forces during the Civil War.
