Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


Notes

Excavations at Thirsk Castle in 1994 found evidence of a pre-Conquest Anglo-Saxon rampart, presumably part of a fortification. An early Saxon pagan cemetery was also discovered.
