There is ample free parking in Olney but make sure you check the time limit on your location. Follow this link to take you to a map showing free carparks in Olney on the Olney Town Council website. There is also parking on the roads around Market Place and along both sides of High Street.
Please note that there is no parking on the Market Place carpark on Thursdays and the first Sunday of each month as this is when there is still a market held in Olney.

To find us look for a large brick building on the south-east corner of Olney’s historic Market Place. A short walk around the corner, on the main road, will take you to Church Street where you can view the Vicarage – here William Cowper’s friend John Newton preached and wrote ‘Amazing Grace’ (please note this is a private residence and can only be viewed from outside).
