Point of Interest Number 6 - which is merely a pause.
Glance down the entrance to Berrill’s Court (which is next to the Chemist’s shop at Number 14 Market Place) where many of the lace makers lived in small thatched cottages. It is difficult to be precise about the number of cottages that were situated in this small court, but it is estimated that there were in excess of 20 dwellings housing shoeworkers, farmworkers, lace makers and their large families.
Continue to walk along the east side of the Market Place until you are opposite the Cowper and Newton Museum (Point of Interest Number 7 and the final stop on this trail).
This point of interest is part of the tour: A Lace Trail around Olney (Revised August 2018)
