Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Little Brickhill is a village and civil parish in the Borough of Milton Keynes and ceremonial county of Buckinghamshire, England. It is just outside and overlooking Milton Keynes itself, two and a half miles west of Woburn in Bedfordshire. The village name 'Brickhill' is a compound of Brythonic and Old English words that have the same meaning: a common occurrence in this part of the country. The Brythonic word 'breg' means 'hill', as does the Old English word 'hyll'. In the Domesday Book of 1086 the village was referred to as Brichelle. The village has, for a long time, gathered most of its income from the Roman road Watling Street that passes through the parish from north-west to south-east, and anciently from a market that was established in the village in 1228. At one time the county Assize Courts were held in Little Brickhill, making it adversely larger than nearby Great Brickhill. The last time the assizes were heard here was in 1638show more
