RH15/102/6/2/175(a). This appears to be an abstract by Sir James Standsfield of correspondence between November 1674 and February 1678 principally concerning the question of Mr Vermuyden’s claim to a share in Wanlockhead lead mines. Although the correspondents are not named, those with dates matching surviving originals indicate they are from John Lindsay & Co. of London, which is consistent with the content and style of these abstracts. The list of dates of the letters abstracted is given here; transcripts of the content are given as individual items under the corresponding dates.

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
