Kicking off day 33 of the Olympic torch relay was birthday girl Jessica Hoggarth-Hall, 14, who started her leg of the journey from York to Carlisle outside the city's 14th Century cathedral. York Minster, with its famous stained glass Rose Window, is the largest gothic cathedral in northern Europe.
As the Olympic flame left York bound for Carlisle, Josephine Loughran posed with the Scots Guardsman steam locomotive outside the city's National Railway Museum. Josephine gave up part of her lung for her sister who had cystic fibrosis.
Passengers on board the Scots Guardsman got a close up of the flame as torchbearer Josephine Loughran carried it through the carriages as they made the journey from York to the North Yorkshire market town of Thirsk.
At Aysgarth Falls, in Lower Wensleydale, Frederick Collett handed the flame over to Caroline Curtis. The upper fall was used for the fight scene between Robin Hood and Little John in the 1991 film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves which starred Kevin Costner.
Lucy Gale posed with the Olympic flame in front of Aysgarth Falls, best known for its triple flight of waterfalls carved out by the River Ure. Lucy helped two drivers who had crashed on a railway crossing near Selby, moving one of the cars out of the path of an approaching freight train.
Surgeon Eugene Perry, pictured here at Sutton Bank, carried the flame through the nearby market town of Thirsk. Eugene, from Scarborough, is heavily involved in his local footballing and cricketing community.
Helen Jackson, who works in local hospices caring for terminally ill people, carried the flame at Richmond Castle which has views overlooking the Yorkshire Dales.
After the flame left Richmond it travelled to Barnard Castle where it was carried by the author of Horrible Histories, Terry Deary. His books have since been turned into a Bafta award-winning children's TV programme.
Young members of Carlisle's amateur football club Northbank FC eagerly waited for the torch relay outside Carlisle Castle.
The wait was worth it as several torchbearers in Carlisle ran lively legs, including nurse Vicki Dillon, who is living with Parkinson's disease.
The honour of lighting the cauldron in front of 20,000 spectators in Carlisle's Bitts Park went to local youth worker Jordan Little.
