Went to Blagdon...to a ball and supper. The party consisted of above 200 persons. Most of the Gentlemen’s families in the two Counties and a good many of the Corporation (Aldermen ec.). The Barringtons, Ravensworth family, Lambton, Monk, the Swinburns, Brandlings, Beaumont ec. ec. And everything was conducted not only very handsomely but also very comfortably. I had a favorable opportunity of introducing my sons to a good many of my aristocratic friends, and had the satisfaction also t

Diary – James Losh – 11 Jan 1823

I left Bradley (Mr. Beaumont’s) after breakfast. (It) is a handsome gentlemanly seat, pleasantly situated. Mr. Beaumont appears to be an amiable man, of liberal opinions, and considerable information. But he certainly does not appear to me to be a man of powerful mind, and his knowledge of metaphysics and Political Econony (of both of which he talks a good deal) is not very profound. He has been much in foreign countries and has been by no means an inattentive observer of their manners,

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 15 Mar 1823

Mr Beaumont March 1823 I do not think any part of Broomley Fell can be planted this year to advantage as the snow is still upon it and the season is far advanced ... I am glad our markets are considerably better but unfortunately for most of the tenants they have marketed the greatest part of their corn of last years growth but it will nevertheless be the means of inducing them to continue their improvements in draining in expectation of the next being a better year.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 1 Apr 1823

Mr Beaumont Apr 1823 The colliery at Kirkheaton was retained by Col Beaumont and is let to Mr Dixon ... I have reason to believe the present tenant is considerably in arrears. The colliery has been very much neglected and might in proper hands have worked twice the quantity of coals. Dixon spends the chief part of his time in the Ale house and I should suppose cannot long keep his head above water ... Excepting the breaking of the ice we have had no flood whatever this winter. The dam was

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 1 May 1823

Mr Beaumont May 1st 1823 … enclosing an estimate and sketch of a stone bridge which you can compare with the one sent by Mr <....> I shall enclose with my accounts a letter I received from Mr Swinburne asking the loan of some <....> belonging to the Band of your Regiment. In my answer ... I said that you had declined a similar application last year as you wished the Band to meet and practice regularly.

Letter – Benjamin Johnson to Thomas Wentworth Beaumont – 15 May 1823

Mr Beaumont (undated) … the total estate of erecting such a bridge I estimate to be £4591. If it is made a Tole Bridge and you should consider to have it erected by shareholders I think there is little doubt but the money might be raised. Take 50 shares at £100 each as the number necessary to complete the Bridge and the approach to it and of these shares if you and Col Beaumont would each take five I do think the remainder might be made up.
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
