The flame travelled across the county, carried by a number of local torchbearers as excitement for the 2012 Olympics built.

As well as coming to Chesterfield and Buxton, the Olympic Torch even took a trip on the cable cars at Matlock Bath’s Heights of Abraham.

We’ve taken a look back in our archive and put together a slideshow of our pictures from the day but we also want your pictures and memories for a round-up later today.
