Bellringers and Spring Show


On Wednesday March 12 the Cowden bellringers rang a quarter peal of Plain Bob Doubles in memory of The Rev. David Horner, who was Rector of Cowden from 1995 to 2005.  His funeral had taken place in Cowden on the previous Friday and two of his four children, Lynn and Michael, were still staying in the village and were able to listen to the ringing before driving back to County Durham.
