Spring Lane was extremely narrow before No 3 High Street - previously Clark's butchers shop and then Markham's antique shop - was demolished and Spring Lane widened in the 1950s. It was just about wide enough for the passage of one horse and cart! You will observe that it is not exactly wide now, and you will remember that - as its name implies - it had a significant stream flowing down it before the stream entered the High Street. There's a thought to finish with!
WE ARE BACK WHERE WE STARTED, SO WHAT NEXT?
On behalf of the Olney & District Historical Society (ODHS) and the Cowper and Newton Museum (C&NM), we trust that you have enjoyed your self-guided trail around Olney High Street. If you did not have an opportunity to visit the C&NM before starting this walk then please consider a visit to this amazing heritage attraction today or in the very near future.
And finally, you will have noticed that this walk has conveniently ended within a few steps of a dozen or so restaurants, coffee shops and cafes. Why not make your selection and enjoy!
