The Olympic Flame

This last set of photos, from a different angle, shows the Olympic Flame being transferred from the ‘miners lamp’ to the first torchbearer, Carol Ann Clarke, just inside the County Durham boundary.  Few people witnessed this, as it was expected to take place at the junction a little up the road, where most people were waiting.  An album of  selected photos has been put in Photo Galleries, under the Pages section on this site.

    Thanks Jeff for your work and time to provide us all with these wonderful photos and memories of a really unique day, when this powerful global symbol arrived at our tiny bridge over the river Derwent, and brought more history to Shotley Bridge that day.
