I dined and staid all night at Bradley with Mr. Beaumont (his brother Edwd. was with him).   My opinion of Mr. Beaumont is unchanged.   Had he been a person of moderate fortune and properly educated, he would have been an amiable and accomplished man, whereas now he is evidently (tho’ not without some good qualities), the mere slave of his passions and his habits.   Mr. Ed. Beaumont is sickly and feeble looking but seems to be a pleasing young man.

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
