About Cowlingweb

Cowling Web is a free website dedicated to Cowling Village, it's inhabitants, history and the surrounding area known as Cowling Parish.

The site is owned, built, funded and hosted by Mark Wilson and his wife Kathryn.

The idea for the site first came about in August 1999, when the original idea was to create a site to cover the whole of the valley from Cowling down to Kildwick. After some consideration that idea was put on hold due to the size of the prospective task. After some more thought and a little research the site was built in June/July 2001 and was launched in August later that year.

Over the past seven years a great deal of (very enjoyable) hard work has gone into further research and development of the site. Locals and historians including Joan & Robin Tindale, Maurice Benson, David Hoyle, Dennis Harker, Malcolm & Edna Smith, Ken Edgar Jnr & Snr, Dorothy Holmes, Trevor Smith (Swanley, Kent), Barry Emmott, Mark Barnes and the members of Moonrakers history group have all been invaluable in contributing to the site.

The site has become far more popular than we could ever have imagined and in January 2005 a new design was launched with a new Message Board & Galleries.

In November 2008 this design was implemented and the site was re-built from the ground up making it faster and hopefully simpler for the visitor to use.

We are always looking for people to get involved with helping us build up more content for the site with photographs both old and new, news items or anything interesting that people would enjoy viewing.

If you would like to help, feel we missed anything or have any ideas about how we could improve the site please feel free to get in touch via the > Contact Cowlingweb < page.

We hope you enjoy viewing the site and always like to hear from people so why not put a message on the > Message Board <

Mark & Kathryn.
