Annual visit to the mines thus terminated satisfactorily.   The death of poor Col. Beaumont makes no difference in the business arrangements of the family and I have nothing to say new of Mrs B., except that I think age and infirmities have rather improved and softened her character.   I was glad that there was no necessity to dismiss any of her numerous workpeople (above 3000) tho' no doubt the reduction of wages must diminish their comforts very considerably.

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
