Camerton Civil Parish


Camerton is a civil parish in the Allerdale district of Cumbria, which includes the village of Camerton, the hamlet of Ribton and a few other farms/hamlets. At the time of the 2011 Census the population of Camerton Civil Parish was 173. The ancient Parish of Camerton, then part of Cumberland, was more extensive and also included Seaton (now a seperate civil parish in its own right). Listed buildings in Camerton Civil Parish include St Peter's Church, Camerton Hall and Ribton House. Also within the bondaries of the civil Parish are parts of the former Royal Naval Armaments Depot site - RNAD Broughton Moor, which opened in 1939 and was decommissioned in 1992. 

Not to be confused with the Civil Parish of Camerton in Somerset.
