Brinkhill is small village in a valley between South Ormsby and Harrington. Brinkhill was mentioned in the Domesday Book as belonging to Earl Hugh, nephew of Wlliam the Conqueror. The Church of England

During the Civil War, Oliver Cromwell wanted a local farmer to give his
horses to the Parliamentary army. However, the farmer was a Royalist.
He sent the horses to be shod to a local blacksmith but with instructions
that the horse's feet were to be pricked. Consequently, they were no use
to Cromwell's army.

a mile at the beck there is a path off to the right which takes you through
