Welcome to Cowling Moonrakers
A local group of people from in and around the North Yorkshire village of Cowling, who regularly meet in the winter months to discuss many of the local historical elements of our village, spending the summer visiting as many of these as we can.  Our website is aimed at recording this information to increase our local history knowledge and help us maintain it for future people. We hope you enjoy our website and welcome your support and input into making it a more informative site for all.

We meet the FIRST THURSDAY of EVERY MONTH - Cowling Village Hall at 7:30 pm.





This website is dedicated to the memory of
David W. Hoyle
