I am delighted to announce a new website devoted to Willie Riley, author of Windyridge and other popular tales of Yorkshire life. The site was created by David Copeland, who has studied and written extensively about Riley for over 20 years, recently completing an M.Phil at the University of Bradford on his life, works, and legacy: “From Bradford Moor to Silver Dale”. The website includes some of David’s key discoveries, including a detailed account of Riley’s fascinating life, a bibliography, and photographs. Riley’s Archive, much of it unearthed by David during his researches, is being donated to Special Collections at the University of Bradford.
