Mrs. Beaumont is certainly not a pleasant person to do business with, but she has many good and some kind qualities and I do not doubt by steadiness and a moderate degree of attention, to get on vastly well in my new situation.   Her principal agent in London appears to me to be a good man of business and I found all his accounts clear and very regular.   Indeed, Mr. Hopkins has been brought up and occupied all his life, in business connected with lead and I am disposed to think very well indeed both of him and of the clerks whom he employs in his office.

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
