"KIRK-BAMPTON, a parish in the county Cumberland, 6 miles W. of Carlisle, its post town, and 6 N.E. of Wigton. It contains the townships of Bampton Great and Little, and Oughterby. It is a polling-place for the county elections. The soil is various. In this parish are traces of numerous defensive works erected against the incursions of the moss-troopers. The principal of them is at the S. of the village, which occupies nearly an acre, and consists of an enclosure defended by a double rampant and double ditch."
