Bowes is a village in County Durham, some 14 miles northwest of Richmond and about 18 miles due west of Darlington. Set on the north bank of the River Greta, the village was, until by-passed, astride the A66 trunk road. The Romans had a fort here, guarding the Stainmore pass over the Pennines, and their site was reused by the Normans who built a castle. The village grew around the castle, and the name Bowes is first mentioned in a charter of 1148.
