Such of the Carriers as pd for lost Lead must bring the Recets with them wch we gave them for the Lead wch it appeared they had lost but most of which is since found.  Mr Bell, Wm Pattinson & Isaac Burnhope are the only persons who appeared to be defaulters.

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
