Brinkhill in Lincolnshire: St. Philip's Church of England

The Church of St. Philip's was rebuilt in 1848 of old greenstone and brick replacing the original chalk and thatch. St. Philip's has a stone cross on the exterior of the southern wall.

'Brinkhill Gold.'

In 1821 labourer working in a field near the church found a stratum of blue clay what he took to be a quantity of gold nuggets. On investigation however, the 'nuggets' were found to be merely pyrites of barren marcasite which because of their bright yellow colour earned the name 'Brinkhill Gold.' (from a notice inside the Church).
