As a royalist stronghold in the English Civil War it was briefly sieged by Parliamentarians.
In 1865, the Crown Inn opened in North Scale.
The village grew with the development of the Red Ley estate in the 1960s and the Barnes estate in the 1970s.
North Scale has a community centre, and is linked by bus services to the rest of Walney Island, and to Barrow-in-Furness, via the Jubilee Bridge.
The village is home to the Lakes Gliding Club.
