Not at lot of people know this but Colmer’s Hill is an iconic land mark just on the outskirts of Bridport , in West Dorset.

Is one of a number of sites that is being put forward to the Olympic committee to be recreated near Tower Hill in time for the 2012 Olympic Games in London ,if selected it will have a number of caves and tunnels created inside.

Make sure you look for updates to see if it has been chosen,The hill itself is 400 ft above sea level and was named after the rector of Symondsbury John Colmer, it has a number of trees at the top which makes it a great subject for artists and photographers , the trees themselves were planted just after world war one.

It is of course a great place to go hiking and offers magnificent views of the area.
