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.


The remains of Insworke manor house and its associated late 13th century domestic chapel occupy the site of the 12th century Royal Manor of Insworke. The Medieval house was demolished circa 1797, but part of the boundary wall remains. The chapel, built in the late 13th century and licensed in 1331, was later used as a barn. It is now a roofless ruin but has virtually complete walls. A sketch of 1853 shows it having an upper floor and complete roof with access by an outside flight of steps at the south. The chapel is built of roughly coursed local slate rubble. The remains of the chapel are designated as both a Listed Building and a Scheduled Monument.
