The monument comprises a depopulated settlement of post-medieval date.

The monument is situated at about 170m OD and consists of the abandoned township of Cammoch. The township, as depicted on the Ordnance Survey First Edition map (1867), comprises three roofed buildings, two unroofed buildings, two enclosures, a lime kiln and a head-dyke.

The remains are generally visible as partially turf-covered walls measuring c.0.5m high, and the buildings vary from c.7m by 3m to 20m by 3.5m. Seven unroofed buildings, one enclosure, a kiln, all annotated as disused, and part of the head-dyke are shown on the current edition of the OS 1:10000 map (1993).

The area proposed for scheduling comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related material may be expected to survive. It is irregular in shape, with maximum dimensions of 120m ENE-WSW by 120m NNW-SSE, as marked in red on the accompanying map extract.

Statement of Scheduling

The monument is of national importance because of its potential to contribute to an understanding of post-medieval settlement and economy. Its importance is increased by its proximity to other monuments of potentially contemporary date.
