Historically within Lancashire, the village is served by the Cark and Cartmel railway station on the Furness Line between Barrow-in-Furness and Lancaster.

The village used to have a water-powered cotton mill between 1785 and c1815.

Cark is ½ mile south of Holker Hall owned by Lord and Lady Cavendish.

A Royal Air Force airfield was constructed near Flookburgh in late 1940 and named RAF Station Cark. It was used by training and anti-aircraft co-operation units from March 1941 until closure in December 1945. After many years of disuse, it was reopened for civilian use and is the location of the North West Parachute Centre.
