This walk is from Olney in Buckinghamshire to Odell in North Bedfordshire, with much of the walk on the Three Shires Way, a long-distance bridleway which runs from Tathall End in Buckinghamshire, through North Bedfordshire and ends at Grafham Water in Cambridgeshire. The majority of the walk is on bridleways with gently rolling hills and short lengths of green lanes, where you may meet some off-road traffic during the months May to September.

Olney is a small market town best known for The Olney Pancake Race. The town has lots of tea shops and antique shops to tempt you to stay awhile. Well worth visiting is the Cowper & Newton Museum about the lives of William Cowper and John Newton, who wrote the 'Olney Hymns'.

Odell is a pretty little village set in the heart of the North Bedfordshire countryside and is very much like the villages in the Cotswolds without the crowds! There are thatched cottages, a 15th Century Anglican church (All Saints) and a lovely thatched village pub, The Bell. The village is on the edge of the Harrold - Odell Country Park.
