Seaton

Seaton Barncroft Ave by Alexander Kapp GeographSeaton is a suburb of Workington and is therefore a bedroom community. Once it served the farming and mining industries. Before that it was a market town dating from its receiving a charter in the 13th century. A three day fair was part of the privilege of holding the charter.
