I think the trouble with Brentwood was visibilty, most of it might hve been through woodland, Hadleigh has good visbility

Measuring 85mm in diameter the gold, silver and bronze medals designed by British artist David Watkins are considerably larger than those in many previous Games and, weighing in at a hefty 400 grams - the heaviest for a summer Games - multiple champions may well be paying some excess baggage on their flights home.
As at all the modern Olympics since 1896, apart from Paris in 1900 when they were rectangular, London's medals are circular with one side featuring the obligatory Greek goddess Nike - the symbol of victory and embodiment of the spirit of the Games.
It is the other side, however, that organisers say will encapsulate London's third hosting of the Games, following the previous editions in 1908 and 1948.
The now-familiar London 2012 logo features strongly in the abstract design, appearing to rise out boldly from the centre of the medal which is criss-crossed by lines which are meant to symbolise energy radiating out from the city.
"They could be particularly popular with javelin throwers," admitted Watkins. "Or fencers," he added, pointing to his design which also features the River Thames as a ribbon snaking through the heart of the medals.
The medals for next year's Olympics have been revealed in Trafalgar Square, one year before the start of the Games. - 2
