"Billy Bell, Part 2 The rest of the Redesdale Roadmans’s Poems" is an ebook companion volume to "Billy Bell: Redesdale Roadman, Border Bard". That book contained a selection of the poetry he wrote with wit, warmth and humour a century ago about the area and people he knew, mainly in Northumberland and around the Scottish Borders. This book contains all the rest of the poems plus a Glossary of Border and Redesdale dialect words and a chapter about many of the people in the poems. The project to publish the poems was supported by the Northumberland National Park who recognised its contribution to bringing alive the landscape and the social and cultural heritage of the area. For more about Billy Bell see the Bellingham Heritage Centre website.

About the Author

William Bell lived in Northumberland just south of the Scottish Border. He mended the roads up to Carter Bar for nearly 50 years. He wrote the great majority of his poems between 1903 and 1913. He wrote about the people and places he knew. Many of the poems are comic and in the local dialect. They can also be seen as a picture of a bygone time. "Billy Bell, Redesdale Roadman, Border Bard" contains a selection of his poems along with other chapters on his life and times. It is available in print and online elsewhere. "Billy Bell, Part 2" is only available online.
