BURROW MUMP

DESCRIPTION + /

Prominent natural formation which may have been artifically scarped and resembles a possible motte, surmounted by ruins of St Michael's Church. Excavations in 1939 located a number of terraces which producted medieval material. Medieval pits were identified to the west of the church. The church may originally have been part of an adulterine castle. The present church was constructed in 1724 and replaced an earlier one, the plan of which has been traced by excavations. The finds are in Taunton Museum. Burrow Mump is a scheduled monument.
