A page has been torn from the volume at this point, the pencil annotations to the original going from 140 to 142, and the archivist adding ‘1 leaf torn out’. The start of this letter is on the missing page of the letterbook. The date is not known, but it is somewhere between 1st – 12th Sept. In a letter to the Bankes’ on Sept 12th MB refers to an earlier one dated 9th , presumably one of those now missing, so a date of 9th is assumed for this and subsequent letters dated ‘ditto’

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
