As today's route was passing near the house decided couldn't not go and see. At 5.30pm crowd starting to build up
At 6.00pm initial convoy with a note on one windscreen and the girl on top of the bus saying the torch was 6 mins away
Well, 20 mins later finally arrives, just as the camera went into sleep mode so picture of back of first torchbearer. Each one runs/walks 300m.
A couple more shots further up the road, with view of next couple of torch bearers .
Didn't follow all the way in to Bolton as the crowd had really built up and running down the pavement difficult. So most impressed with the turn out from the Locals, glad I made the effort and got home early to see it, if only to avoid the traffic chaos it created.
You can catch it early doors tomorrow coming through Horwich along Chorley New Road starting at the Beehive at 6:42am.
