These photographs were taken around midday on the 28th June 2012 at the junction of Old Mill Lane and Leeming Lane South, Mansfield Woodhouse. Hundreds of people were there to see the Olympic Torch relay, and the heavy rain, thunder and lightening did not deter them/us. The atmosphere was wonderful and there was much excitement as the cavalcade of police, buses, and promotional vehicles came past with sirens or horns blowing and music playing. The first sight of the torch bearer was wonderful and there were cheers all around. Truly a moment to remember. Once the cavalcade had passed, wet and happy people departed and all that was left was puddles.
