(1). Olney Park Farm, about 2 miles N.W. of Olney Church, is a house of two storeys and an attic, built of coursed stone rubble early in the 17th century. The roofs are tiled. The original plan is roughly T-shaped, with the central wing extending towards the N., but the space between the wings on the E. side is filled by a modern addition. The S. doorway has moulded stone jambs and head with a moulded panel and dripstone above it. At the E. and W. ends of the transverse wing are gables with original moulded coping and shaped kneelers; in the E. gable is a small loop light, apparently original, now blocked. The chimney stack on the N. side of the transverse wing is original, and has two square shafts of stone, joined by a moulded necking near the top and finished with a moulded cap.

Interior:—Some of the ceilings have old beams. One original fireplace remains, and has moulded jambs and depressed head, with a square outer member enclosing carved spandrels.
