Changes to torch route

Have your say

THE Olympic Flame relay route through Barnsley next month has been changed.

A total of 19 torchbearers will run through the borough on Monday, June 25, but will now no longer go along County Way and Old Mill Lane.

The flame will arrive in Barnsley at 1.25pm, starting its route through the town on Pontefract Road, Lundwood.

Torchbearers will then carry the torch along the A628 to Cundy Cross roundabout and are expected to arrive at the Grove Street junction of Pontefract Road at 1.48pm.

They are due to pass the Town Hall at 1.58pm, via Kendray Street, Eldon Street and Market Hill.

The torch will then be carried along Church Street, where it will stop at Barnsley College at 2pm.

The relay will leave the borough at 3.46pm.
