Photographs from Thornton Highland Games over the years

With the recent news that organisers of Thornton Highland Gathering have decided to call it a day, we’ve taken a look back into our archives to discover these photographs of Games gone by.

Crowds and competitors alike have turned out in Memorial Park over the years to enjoy a great day of sporting events and family friendly fun.

However, organisers last month called an end to the event, which has been running for around 150 years. The event has not been staged since the Covid-19 pandemic.

What are your favourite memories of the Thornton Games, and do you recognise anyone in our photo gallery?
