“There stand the three Brickhills, all in a row, Great Brickhill, Little Brickhill, and Brickhill with the Bow.”

The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book, Brichelle combining the Norman/British word for hill top ‘bryk’ with ‘hylle’ the Anglo Saxon word ‘hill’. The Boel family in the twelfth century gave us the Old English name: Bolle Brichelle. Although outside the original designated area for the new city, Bow Brickhill is now within the unitary authority of Milton Keynes Council and lies within Greensand Country, a 40-mile stretch of beautiful landscape and countryside.
