London 2012: Herefordshire and Worcestershire Olympic torch routes

The Olympic torch will be passing through Herefordshire and making two journeys through Worcestershire on its way to London for the 2012 Games.

On Thursday, 24 May the torch will travel through Herefordshire on its way to Shropshire.

At the end of the day it enters Worcestershire, spending the night in Worcester before travelling south through the county on 25 May.

The torch is back in Worcestershire on Sunday, 1 July.

Councillor Roger Phillips, from Herefordshire Council, said: "The relay will build on our success at staging the Blind World Cup and offer an opportunity for our residents to show the Olympic spirit is truly alive and well in the county."

The route in Herefordshire will see runners carrying the torch through Ledbury, Bartestree, Lugwardine, Hereford and Leominster on 24 May

On the same day it will pass through Callow Hill, Bewdley, Kidderminster, Droitwich Spa and Fernhill Heath in Worcestershire on its way to Worcester.

After an overnight stay in the city, runners will take it through Powick, Malvern and on to Ross-on-Wye.

The torch returns to Worcestershire on 1 July, travelling through Redditch, Astwood Bank, Alcester, Evesham, Wickhamford and Broadway.
