Excellent news i honestly thought that was the end of access after it became unstable. treehugger-uk Posted by treehugger-uk

Well done that council... being all too ready to slag off officialdom when things go wrong I should be equally prepared to happily acknowledge a job well done. I am. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

That is good news. Funny I had just looked on line to see what a Tump is, and then I came on TMA and saw this post.
Apparently it's old Worsestershire dialect.

There be quite a few "tumps" in Gloucestershire (Nan Tow's and Hetty Pegler's), Herefordshire (Wormelow) and into south Wales (Swlch Tump hillfort). thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
