1948 Olympic Torch completes circuit of West Norfolk
THIS is the moment the 1948 Olympic Torch entered Upwell.
The 170-mile Olympic Torch relay around West Norfolk was part of the Jubilee celebrations and a nod to the imminent Olympic Games.
Some 170 torchbearers on foot and cycle carried the torch over the four-day event, which was organised by the West Norfolk Sports Council and raised money for The Stroke Association.
The torchbearers, who ranged in age from 14 to 98, were nominated by their local communities.
The torch reached Upwell on Monday.
