ALL ODHS HERITAGE TRAILS

ODHS has produced several heritage trails for Olney under the following headings:

1 Trails that can be accessed directly in full on this website

The trails (or walks or tours) under this heading tend to be more detailed than those produced for walking trails using the PocketSights and iziTravel software packages. The three full trails can be directly accessed on-line by clicking the relevant link below:

A Lace Walk around Olney

Tour of Olney Market Place 1800s – 1950s

2 Trails that are best accessed for Smartphones and used whilst actually walking the trails as direct (audio) guides

ii Trails adopting the izi.Travel software package

Two trails are available (as per the PocketSights software):

Olney High Street – Heritage Trail (1 km, approx 45 mins)

A Lace Walk around Olney  (0.8 km, approx 35 mins)

The following link directs you to the izi Travel website. It presents the full narrative and images for this Olney trail using up to three different narrators to cover the Points of interest. This link also demonstrates how to download the ios and android apps. In the compiler’s opinion, of the three software packages adopted, the izi.Travel software is the most technically advanced and provides the user with the most comprehensive experience.
