Messrs Sykes, Milnes & Co						Newcastle 27th Feby 1806

Ashover near Chesterfield


      In reply to your favour of the 24th Inst I have to inform you that very little Lead has been sold here since the great Sales made in October last by the Lead Company & W Beaumont at £38 & £39 Six Months credit. We attempted afterwards to get an advance of £1 per Fo[dder], but it has only been obtained for very small parcels, and there is now scarce demand.

	I don’t think it likely that any of the Prop[rietor]s of White Lead Works would wish to purchase a quantity of Derbyshire Lead at present, but if you will mention the lowest price & credit with the quantity you wish to engage I will make the enquiry for you.

	I am respectfully yours etc CB

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
