We visit the hidden nature reserve which has one of the best views over Bristol

The Bommie gained its name from the bombs that were dropped there during World War Two

The entrance to this green space in south Bristol is so unassuming, you could walk down the street without even knowing it's there.

A small path, flanked by bushes on either side, between two houses on a quiet residential street in Knowle, leads you through to the Bommie.

Named after bombs that were dropped there during World War Two, the open space is part of the wider Northern Slopes nature reserve.

Being on top of a hill, it offers some of the best views over Bristol, with the city centre immediately catching your eye as you set foot.

Popular with dog walkers, you can stroll down the hill, which has trails through woods that guide you to the remainder of the slopes.

Here are 14 photos of the Bommie:
