What is Landshare?
With allotment waiting lists massively over-subscribed and people right across the country keener than ever to grow their own fruit and veg, the aim for Landshare is to become a UK wide initiative to make British land more productive and fresh local produce more accessible to all. But all of this depends on people like you registering their interest now.
Use landshare to:
Find land where you can grow your own
Offer land in return for produce
Identify land suitable for planting
Build a growing community
Why get involved?

Snowden Family History Research Website
Added to: Tracing Your Family History
In June last year I had the pleasure of meeting Hugh Atkinson and his family who were visiting England from Newfoundland in Canada. I have been in touch with Hugh via email for many years so finally meeting him in real life was wonderful.

Hughs paternal grandmother, Elsa Florella Clough Snowden was the daughter of Rev Samuel Snowden who was born in Keighley and buried in Utley Cemetery, Keighley. Who in turn was the son of Emmott Snowden born Cowling in 1828.

Hugh has over the years has spent many hours tracing the Snowden Family History and has now kindly made his research available via it's own website.

In Hughs own words:- The purpose of this site is to encourage and enable research into the Snowden's of the Cowling area including the family of Viscount Philip Snowden.

Snowden Family History Research Website
This site is dedicated to Snowden Family of Cowling, Ickornshaw, Kildwick area Atkinson Family Dacre, Hartwith & Hampsthwaite area and Steele of Shropshire

Added: 5th Nov 2008
As many people know we closed the website in early August. We would like to thank all the people who contacted us showing their support for the site and expressing their sadness that it was no longer available.

The reason for removing the site was mainly due to the negativity and apathy that at times seems to totally surround the village. Negativity breeds nothing but more negativity. Sometimes people take things for granted or complain about things without even knowing the work that is involved. If people would only get more involved in village life instead of complaining about it maybe there really would be less reason for complaining in the first place and the village would be a better place.

Cowling Web is a free website dedicated to Cowling Village, it's inhabitants, history and the surrounding area known as Cowling Parish. Nothing has changed on that point, the website is still totally free so the village is really getting something for nothing, but there is a catch! We do hope to keep the site as up to date and as interesting as possible but that is where people like you can help us by letting us know what is going on in the village. If you are part of one of the many local groups or committees please let us know when you are holding meetings or events. Photographs both old and new have always been a popular part of the website so we are hoping that if you take any nice photos in the village or find any old ones that you might pass them onto us to put in the galleries. Your thoughts and opinions are also very important and we are always happy to listen to what people are saying so if you would like to help by contributing to the site please feel free to get in touch with your ideas.

So what is new ?

The design is the main change. The whole site has been re-built from the ground up making it easier to update but more importantly faster and hopefully simpler for the visitor to use.

We have also made the website wider, the old site was 800 pixels wide and now it is 1000 pixels.

With making the site wider we have also added a larger top banner. The one you see at the moment was originally a test image but the people who have been testing the site for us prior to it going live commented on it so much we decided to run with it for a while. As with the old design we hope to change the banner monthly so if you would like to see one of your photos used as a banner please > Get In Touch <

The old photo gallery has had a little tweaking and now has "< Previous Image + Next Image >" making flicking through the photos easier and hopefully more enjoyable.

We are also now offering businesses & tradesmen from outside the village the opportunity to add their details to the business listings and also advertise on the site. > Click here for more details <

Most of the old content has been copied over from the old design with a few things moved to the Local History & Information section. If you find something we have missed please feel free to get in touch and point it out.

We hope you enjoying using the site and hope you will get involved with helping us build the site making it even more enjoyable for all.
