Living in Olney: The Local Area Guide

If you’re looking for a warm and welcoming town to live in, with great access to a number of popular towns, you’ll love Olney. While it’s not that big in size, the market town certainly boasts a whole lot of amenities – making it a popular choice for those seeking life away from the city. There’s plenty to enjoy in terms of landscape and lots of lovely independent shops too, with Northampton, Bedford and Milton Keynes supplementing the town’s offering further.

The market town is perhaps best known for its Pancake Race, which runs in the town almost every Pancake Day. Here, the women of Olney recreate the 1445 tradition and run from the market place to the Church of St. Peter and Paul. A children’s race was also introduced more recently, involving little ones from all the local schools. When not partaking in pancake-related activities, you’ll find most of the locals enjoying the local sports, browsing the weekly markets, or relaxing at one of the many pubs, cafes and restaurants in the town.

Demographics

The 2011 census recorded the population at 6,477 – with a wide variety of residents of all ages. Almost a fifth of the population were aged 65 or over and exactly a fifth aged under 16.

Of the working age population, 54% were employed in some measure, and just 10% were retired. The majority of those working were in professional occupations and senior roles, many as managers, directors, and senior officials, or in professional occupations, associate professional or technical occupations.

Detached and semi-detached properties were also in abundance here with approximately two thirds of all properties being this type. What’s more, Olney is a relatively low social housing area with few properties belonging to the local authority.

Education

Olney has its own infants and middle school, as well as a relatively new secondary school. Ofsted last inspected Olney Infant School in 2008. The overall effectiveness of the school was assessed as ‘outstanding’, as was the ‘effectiveness of the Early Years Foundation Stage’. The middle school performed well too, achieving an ‘overall effectiveness’ rating of ‘good’. Assessors also noted that “pupils achieve well, especially in reading and mathematics”.

Ousedale School, which has a campus in Olney, is relatively new to the area. The new £7m building opened in 2007 and now caters for around 600 pupils in the region. Academic performance here is good and the school regularly performs well in local league tables. The Ofsted report of May 2012 and May 2016 gave the school a rating of ‘good’ and outlined some ‘outstanding’ features too.

Transport

If you’re planning on commuting to one of the nearby towns for work, you’re in luck. Northampton, Bedford and Milton Keyes are all within a 25 minute drive of Olney. Getting to these major towns is easy too – with Junction 14 on the M1 being just seven miles away. For travel into London, a popular option is rail. While Olney doesn’t have its own train station, there are fast trains into London from Milton Keynes Central and Bedford Station. Stewartby Station also offers a good rail service around the area.

When it comes to bus transportation, Olney is well serviced. A number of operators offer services in the region, including Redline and Vale Travel. The two major routes go from Lavendon to Milton Keynes and vice versa, stopping at Olney. There’s also a regular service from Newport Pagnell to Olney.

Amenities and shopping

With Olney continuing to expand with new housing estates, the development of good amenities here has been key. You’ll find all the usual essentials – such as banks, a doctor’s surgery and Post Office, as well as a variety of community activities. As a rugby town, the sport is hugely important to the locals – with the tiny town boasting not one but four teams. For those that prefer something less active, there’s lots of socialising to be done in the town centre. Olney’s ‘café culture’ means you’ll often see locals relaxing at one of the many coffee shops or browsing the popular weekly market at The Market Place on Sundays.

When it comes to your groceries, there is some choice in Olney but there aren’t any major supermarkets. In the heart of the town you’ll find a Co-operative Food and a Harvest Greengrocer, but there’s also a Sainsbury’s and an Asda in the nearby towns of Milton Keynes and Northampton. It’s in these larger towns that you’ll find the best High Street stores too. While there are a variety of shopping centres across the region, thecentre:mk still remains one of the most popular and sits a 15 minute drive away.
