Activities from Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers

Project Manager of this community based, volunteer led project, centred on the Dukesfield Arches in Hexhamshire. Its true strength is the eclectic and enjoyable activites, from a Heritage Cook-Off and celebratory beer, to the transcription of over a million words from archive documents. I also developed and delivered fantastic outdoor learning sessions for local Primary Schools to explore their local heritage.

Ian Forbes, project chairman, sHLF @DukesfieldA tweetaid: “It is remarkable in being a truly integrated project with archaeology, conservation, community, arts, education, acting and even brewing working together to bring this bit of history to life. Volunteers and professionals have worked together with huge commitment and enthusiasm. It has been enjoyable for all, great fun, immensely rewarding and we have all learned loads more about the truly regional importance of the lead industry.”
