To Mr Hunter		Newcastle 10 June 1730 

I must desire you will severely reprimand your Dukesfield smelters for not only ill <screening> but also putting lumps of slags into the pig pan wch will certainly be attended with the ill consequence of deprecating our lead & giving it an ill Character at all marketts. The lead markt T. J. & C. is all bad but the last most notoriously so, whoever he is that’s the smelter he ought to be made an example to the Dist[rict], hanging is too good for him. Inclosed is Robinson s ticket to the 1 May		&c	JR

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
