Chiry-Ourscamp (French pronunciation: ​[ʃiʁi uʁskɑ̃]) is a French commune in the Oise department, region of Hauts-de-France.

History[edit]

An early reference to the community dates to the seventh century, when it was referred to as Ursi campus.[3] Château Mennechet, a castle constructed in the late 19th century in Chiry-Ourscamp lies in ruins after being left vacant following the Second World War.[4]
