The Battle of Olney Bridge was a skirmish in the First English Civil War just outside the English town of Olney, Buckinghamshire on November 4, 1643, in which Royalist forces attacked the Parliamentarian forces holding Olney Bridge. The Parliamentarian forces held the bridge, and the remaining Royalists retreated.
The bridge for which the battle is named remains to this day. A memorial to the dead can be found on the site.
