ActivityWilliam Bell, ARIBA, was born in around 1882 and was the son of William Bell of Preston Hall (? Dumfries and Galloway) and Ashwood. The family lived in Scotland but Bell, partly because of family problems, practised as an architect in England, working in Yorkshire, Oxfordshire, and Sussex except for a period during the First World War when he was in France. He married Dorothea Foster and the couple moved to Kirkcudbright during Bell's retirement. She died in 1966 and Bell probably died soon after.
