More information about Cockermouth

Cockermouth — a Place of Rich Car Industry, Finance and Motorsport Connections

Cockermouth, in the north west of England, is a historic market town located in the borough of Allerdale in Cumbria. Home to around 8,500 people, it lies at the rivers Cocker and Derwent and is surrounded by the sweeping Lake District National Park.

The car industry, finance and motorsport — three industries that may have nothing in common immediately shout out particular connections to Cockermouth. It is true that the town is close to major motorways and has a fast-growing economy that has been compared to that of nearby Kendal with its rapidly expanding population; however, the town actually boasts its own rich history of connections to each industry in its own right.

Car Industry Connections

Unlike nearby Wigton, which boasts a Nissan car plant, Cockermouth has no car plants of its own, but the town does have deep connections to the UK's automotive industry.

One of the most popular car dealerships in the area is Lancaster Suzuki on the edge of the town. Located in the industrial estate, it has been a successful business for more than 25 years and sells a wide range of new and used cars.

Cockermouth is also a hub for classic car collectors. The Cumbria Classic Car Centre which specialises in classic car restoration attracts enthusiasts from across the county. The centre hosts classic car events and offers a variety of services for classic car restoration including a range of both mechanical and bodywork services.

Finance Industry Connections

Cockermouth has enjoyed a steady growth in the finance and legal sector over the past few years. Major banks and local financial services companies have created lucrative opportunities in the area, especially with the opening of the Cockermouth Business Centre, the first and only grade A office complex of its kind in the town.

The local government has strongly supported the growth of small financial and legal services companies through various initiatives and investments, to promote a vibrant, business-friendly environment in the town.

The Cockermouth Business Centre is one of the most successful examples of public and private sector collaboration in the area and serves to stimulate economic activity and create local jobs in the finance and legal sector.

Motorsport Connections

Cockermouth is well known in the UK for its historic connection to motorsport and its growth has been reflected in the positive attitude of its local government towards the sport.

The town has some of the best motor racing and experience day facilities in the region. The nearby Grizedale Forest Motorsport & Experience Centre offers a range of experience days and events and is the destination of choice for a variety of rally and racing events throughout the year.


The population of Cockermouth as of 2021 is estimated at 8,636 with a median age of 38.4 years. According to the census data, 81.8% of the population are White British and 3.2% are from a black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background. The average income of those living in the area is around £25,018.

Healthwise, the estimated life expectancy for males is 78.6 years, whilst for females it is 82.4 years.


Cockermouth has developed a formidable reputation for its connection to a variety of industries. Its close proximity to key motorways, major banks, legal and financial businesses and its impetus to business growth have all been catalysts in the wider economic growth of the region. Its strong connection to the car industry, finance industry and motorsport has set the town apart from other towns in the area, making it a much sought-after destination for those in search of career and lifestyle opportunities.
