Tæppa’s Tump is a Ladies North West Morris side which was formed in 1981.
The name is taken from one of the area’s outstanding archaeological sites, the burial mound of “Tæppa” a Saxon chieftain who gave his name to Taplow, which is now a very pleasant village on the outskirts of Maidenhead. The burial mound was opened at the end of the last century and yielded a collection of Saxon grave goods, which are now in the British Museum and are second only to the Sutton Hoo Burial Hoard.
