Olympic Torch Relay visits Lewisham July 23rd

The Olympic Torch will pass through Lewisham on July 23rd 2012. LOCOG has unveiled the torch route today and the interactive map shows that the torch will pass through the borough on its way to the Olympic Park - a journey that takes in more than 1,000 cities, towns and villages.

Lewisham is an Olympic 'gateway borough', which means that it doesn't actually host any Olympic events, but it's near places that do. Southwark and Greenwich (natch) will also be graced by the Flame.

Full disclosure: LOCOG is a client at Edelman (our day job), etc and so on.
