Dukesfield Smelters & Carriers Project

Client: Friends of the North Pennines/Dukesfield Smelters & Carriers Project Steering Group
I worked on this award-winning Heritage Lottery Funded project alongside Yvonne Conchie. The project grew from local people having a long interest in a pair of dramatic stone arches next to the Devil’s Water Burn in Dukesfield Woods. These originally carried two flues, taking fumes away from massive furnaces, part of a large lead smelting mill. I liaised with various experts in their fields to devise the best way of communicating what where often quite complex concepts.
