English: Seascale is a beach resort and village in the county of Cumbria, England. it has a population of 1,747. Although the place-name indicates that it was inhabited by Norse settlers, probably before 1000 AD, the community remained insignificant until the development of a railway line along the coast from Whitehaven to Barrow in Furness in Victorian times, following which, in the 1850s, it was developed as a seaside resort. It was further developed from the 1940s onward as a dormitory community for the nearby Windscale and Calder Hall nuclear sites (later combined as Sellafield). As a result, in the 1950s it was known as "the brainiest town in Britain".
