The Olympic Torch visited Newcastle on 15 June 2012, and the Torch Relay route ran past the former Robert Deuchar's Sandyford Brewery - on the north-east edge of the city centre, almost in Jesmond. The 1904 offices, with a nice archway, is all that's left of the brewery ... where beer was last brewed in 1961. The company became part of Newcastle Breweries. Lynn Pearson, June 2012.
