Olympic torch journey

BARNSLEY Council has revealed the streets that the Olympic Flame will travel down on June 25.

One torchbearer will be Olympic sprinter Dorothy Hyman from Cudworth - one of the fastest female athletes in the world during the 1960s.

People will be able to welcome the flame when it arrives at Pontefract Road, Lundwood at 1.25pm. Torchbearers will carry it along the A628 to Cundy Cross roundabout at about 1.44pm. The torch will arrive at the Grove Street junction of Pontefract Road at 1.48pm and proceed past the Town Hall at 1.58pm, via Kendray Street, Eldon Street and Market Hill.

Torchbearers will then go along Church Street, Old Mill Lane and County Way, to rest at Barnsley College at 2pm. At 3pm the flame will head along County Way and Old Mill Lane before turning right on to the A635 Huddersfield Road, to the junction of Innovation Way at 3.18pm. At 3.21pm the torchbearers will reach Barnsley Road (A637) and will head towards Darton, to turn left onto Churchfield Lane and travel up Ballfield Lane, before leaving the borough at 3.46pm.
