Mr Mulcaster Blaydon 				Dukesf[iel]d 2nd Feb[ruar]y 1780 [sic]


I find now that I have got all the Mill acc[oun]ts for last year, that I had made a mistake in the quantity of Lead deliv[ere]d f[ro]m Dukesf[iel]d & Rookhope in the acco[unt]s I sent you on the 6th Dec[embe]r as youll see below so that there will be only 3 ps of Dukesfield wanting w[hi]ch probably may be lost of the Draughts or hid among the mud at the Stob – as the Wainsmen are accountable for the Allanheads & Rookhope have no fear but we shall get the roads cleared of Last Y[ea]rs Lead early in the Spring – I’m Yrs, &c


Deliv’d to Blaydon 1780		

D        30,740

A         2,546

R 11 Sto 16,804

   8 Sto 12,600

Total    62,690
given as 1780 but presumably an early-in-the-year slip of the pen

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
