There are a couple of ghost stories associated with Olney. The
first concerns the "Castle" pub at the north end of the High Street
(now an Indian Restaurant). Towards the end of the last century,
the landlord's wife and a customer spotted the ghostly form of a
woman in black clothing, whilst another customer watched a man
walk through a locked door. An exorcism was performed, but a
few years later the ghostly woman was seen again. A legend
says that a phantom horse and coach pass through the pub once
a year, though no-one knows the exact date. The second ghost
haunts the Whirlypits, just up the road from the Castle. This is a
"bottomless" pond, and a phantom coach pulled by headless
horses led by a decapitated driver passes through the town and
dives into it, their passenger none other than the Devil on his
way home - probably after a few pints in the Castle !
Did You Know.... that Olney's most feted former residents are
William Cowper, the poet, and John Newton, a former sailor
who served on slave ships, and who collaborated with Cowper
to  produce the
Olney Hymns, which include "Amazing Grace" ?
