Following the closure of the colliery and latterly the Cape Minerals Works, Bowburn declined. More recently the location of the village, near Durham City and close to the A1(M) junction 61, has meant that the village has become a prime site for new commuter housing and industrial estates.

Bowburn has its own Junior and Infant & Nursery schools. Secondary pupils attend school outside the village, mostly at Durham Johnston Comprehensive School in Durham City.

Bowburn Hall Hotel stands in 5 acres of lovely landscaped gardens and is only 2.5 miles from the historic City of Durham, just 2 minutes from the A1M (J61). Bowburn Hall Hotel offers you a great place to stay or dine in Durham. Ideal for a short break or for a business stay, we have 19 individual comfortable bedrooms with quality furnishings. Our Durham hotel features the delightful Conservatory, Restaurant, Ballroom and Lounge Bar.

The first “Bowburn Colliery” was a shaft sunk in 1840 but failed to find workable coal.

The second Bowburn Colliery was sunk a few years later, south of there (near Park Hill), being one of several sunk in the Quarrington and Coxhoe areas. It was close to the terminus of the Durham Branch of the Clarence Railway. The pit was a small concern, worked first by Robson and Jackson and then the West Hetton Coal Company. It probably closed in about 1870.

Originally a small farming hamlet, named after the shape of the small burn that runs through it, Bowburn's history, like that of many other villages in the region, is linked closely to coal mining. Several coal mines were sunk in the area during the 19th century but extensive development did not begin until an entirely new Bowburn Colliery began to be sunk in 1906. Bowburn therefore celebrated its 100th anniversary on 23 July 2006.

Bowburn enjoys fantastic transport links via road, with Newcastle and Gateshead also nearby. This together with its great local amenities, close proximity to beautiful countryside and superbly designed new homes means The Grange is a great place to call home.
