More information about Seascale


Seascale is a small village in Cumbria, England, located on the picturesque western fringes of the Lake District national park, a stunning area of natural beauty. The village boasts a population of approximately 7000 permanent residents and is a popular holiday destination for many visitors to the region. Seascale, however, is far more than just a mere holiday hotspot. It has a rich history of industry and is closely interconnected with the automotive, finance and motorsport worlds.

Car Industry

The automotive industry has played a major part in the history of Seascale. In the 1920s, Henry Lawson moved to the area and opened a small garage and car dealership, which subsequently grew from strength to strength, becoming one of the most successful car dealerships in the region. Henry Lawson Motor Company established a substantial reputation, and was able to attract a plethora of large car makers, including Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Rover.

In the late 1920s and early 1930s, the company again extended its services, and began to incorporate the new car hire concept. Seascale quickly became one the largest and most popular hire car dealers in the Lake District region. In addition to this, the company began to assemble their own cars in addition to selling them, mainly consisting of small two-seater runabouts. This manufacturing arm finished in the mid-1930s and the business returned to specialising in sales and hire, alongside a wide range of after sales services and repairs.

Finance Industry

Throughout its history, Seascale was always closely connected to the finance industry, and in the 1950s this connection flourished. A number of banks opened in the area, providing services and banking facilities to the people of Seascale and its surrounding areas. The main bank that opened in the area was the National Provincial Bank, which started trading in 1957 and flourished for many years.

Throughout the 20th century, the National Provincial Bank was seen as one of the most reliable sources of finance and money exchange within the region. It worked closely with a number of local businesses, helping to fund many new projects, making it an essential part of the local economy.


Seascale is also well known within the international motorsport scene. The village has played a substantial part in the UK motor racing landscape since the late 1950s, when local businessman and budding racing driver John Teasdale purchased a single-seater racing car and began to compete in local events.

Teasdale quickly rose to prominence, and in 1965 opened Seascale Motorsports, a specialist engineering business that focused on designing and constructing racecars for professional driver and team use. For many years Seascale Motorsports was unmatched for its deep understanding of racecar engineering, producing some of the most advanced race cars of the time. The business was also renowned for supplying parts to some of the most famous teams of the period, including Lotus and Williams.


Seascale is a mainly residential area, boasting a population of 7000 people. The population is mainly native British, with a small percentage of the population hailing from a variety of other European countries such as France, Germany and Italy. The majority of the population is between the ages of 25 and 64 (39.5%), with the second largest group within the population being those aged between 65 and 74 (20.2%).


In conclusion, Seascale is a quaint and idyllic village in Cumbria that is steeped in history and culture. It has strong ties to the automotive, finance and motorsport industries, and while relatively small in terms of population, it punches above its weight when it comes to its contributions to the local economy.
