The Olympic Torch visited Hadleigh Essex on 6th July 2012 which was day 49 of the Olympic Torch Relay. However for a brief 30 seconds the torch passed through the edge of Benfleet and we placed ourselves in position to capture this historic event.
Abbey Funeral Services at 10 Benfleet Road kindly offered us the use of their first floor offices to gain a good view of the event.
The edited video shows Torchbearer 95, Hayley Willis, receiving the torch from Torchbearer 94, Alex Richardson, and then entering and leaving Benfleet. This link shows the BBC Torch cam for this part of the relay.
A very good day was had by all.
