All going well on the Lead Mining Roadshow.

It’s at Hexham Library this week – pop in and have a look to find out more about everything that’s going on. There’ll be someone from the project around for some of Wednesday afternoon, some of Friday, and Saturday morning. Leave us a message or send an e mail to us via our contact form.


The Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers Project aimed to celebrate and discover the heritage of the Dukesfield Arches & lead carriers' routes between Blaydon and the lead mines of Allendale and Weardale. A two year community project, it was led by the Friends of the North Pennines in partnership with Hexhamshire and Slaley Parish Councils and the active support of Allendale Estates. It was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the generous support of other sponsors. Friends of the North Pennines: Charity No:1137467
