Mrs Beaumont 35 Portman Square – London

In this and another Cover I beg to transmit thro’ Mr Beaumont the last Quarters Report of Weardale Lead Mines; that for Allenheads and also for Coalcleugh will be forwarded, thro’ the same medium, by to morrow’s post, and afterwards the Cash Accounts and Lead Sales for the last two months. The Mines with the exception of Allenheads, are at present not so productive as the last Quarter but I trust the defaluation is temporary and that the years produce will be equal to an average of former years. – The Trial below the Scar Limestone At Slitt in Weardale, you will observe is not yet proved, but expectations of its productiveness continue undiminished. – Much Injury has been sustained in Weardale in Weardale by the late Floods, exceeding any which have happened for the last 30 Years. – We fortunately escaped the loss of Ore; the Injury done in Water Courses, Washing Conveniences and Waggon Ways is considerable; but are now again replaced & thoroughly repaired

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
