At last, detailed route information on the Olympic torch’s street route has become available.

I would guess that the Southwold beach huts will never be more occupied than on that day, as the torch appears to go right past them!

The torch is due to leave Lowestoft at about 11am on Thursday 5th July, on its way to Southwold. The official statement says:
“ The torch will arrive at Lowestoft from Norwich at about 10:00 BST, then at about 11:00 BST it will travel to Wrentham, Reydon, Southwold, Kelsale, Saxmundham and Aldeburgh – long associated with its classical music festival and its association with composer Benjamin Britten.  It will leave Aldeburgh in the afternoon, going to Wickham Market, Ufford and the scenic town of Woodbridge on the River Deben.”
