Olney History – The Society was founded in 1997 by a group of like-minded people determined to keep Olney history alive for all generations of people in the town and those who have since moved away from Olney.
Please note that the monthly ‘Talks’ element of the society has now been discontinued.
This new article presents a ‘potted’ or summary of Olney’s history followed by a more detailed chronological history of Olney in six sections. It should be considered as a developing introduction to Olney’s history, until the ‘definitive account’ of Olney’s history is available to replace it.
These trails are designed to present Olney visitors and newcomers with an introduction to the history of some of the facets of Olney.
