It is day 28 of the Olympic Torch’s 70 day relay around the UK ahead of the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Today the torch is on its way from Alnwick to Newcastle upon Tyne, passing through various places on this route including; Morpeth, Blyth and Whitley Bay.
The rainy weather hasn’t prevented the crowds from enjoying this historic occasion as the many lined the streets to see torch bearers holding the famous Olympic torch.
Talking of the weather, it’s been a typical British summer so far. Don’t worry though because at Tiles Porcelain Ltd we have a range of high quality natural stone tiles which are perfect for outdoor areas, in rain or shine! We recommend travertine as a patio or pool surround and our rock cladding tiles (below) as a feature garden wall.
