The Olympic Torch – Brentwood Route

The Olympic Torch is coming to Brentwood on Friday 6 July.

It will arrive in Herongate from Grays at 5.41pm, and then travel up the A128 towards Brentwood, partly carried by torch bearers and partly carried by convoy, reaching the junction of Ingrave Road and The Avenue at around 5.58pm, then moving up to Wilson’s Corner and turning east down Shenfield Road. When it passes Middleton Hall Lane the torch will then go into the vehicle convoy taking it back up to Chelmsford.

The full details of the day’s route can be found here: day49route.pdf

Brentwood and Herongate are two of over 1,000 villages, towns and cities announced by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) through which the Olympic Flame will be carried by torchbearers during the London 2012 Olympic Torch Relay. The Torch provides a chance for communities to celebrate and share in the Olympic spirit and marks the countdown to the start of the Games.

The 70 day Olympic Torch Relay, will start at Land’s End, Cornwall on the morning of 19 May. On leaving Land’s End, the Olympic Flame will travel an estimated 8,000 miles around the UK giving thousands of communities and individuals their moment to shine as the Olympic Flame comes to a place near them. Over 95% of the population will be within just 10 miles of the Olympic Flame.
