Brill

4.5
Brill is a village and civil parish in Aylesbury Vale district in Buckinghamshire, England, close to the boundary with Oxfordshire. It is about 4mi north-west of Long Crendon and 7mi south-east of Bicester. It has a Royal charter to hold a weekly market, but has not done so for many years.ToponymyBrill's name is tautological, being a combination of Brythonic and Anglo Saxon words for 'hill' (Brythonic breg and Anglo Saxon hyll). In the reign of Edward the Confessor it was a town called Bruhella.ManorThe manor of Brill was the administration centre for the royal hunting Forest of Bernwood and was for a long time a property of the Crown. King Edward the Confessor had a palace here. There is evidence that Henry II, John, Henry III and Stephen all held court at the palace. It remained in place until the time of Charles I, who turned the building into a Royalist garrison in the English Civil War. This led the Parliamentarian John Hampden to destroy it in 1643.
Brill is in Aylesbury. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Brill trip itinerary using our United Kingdom trip itinerary builder website .
