Explore the Cone

Lying in the heart of the Stourbridge glassmaking industry, the Red House Glass Cone was built at the end of the 18th century and continued to produce glasswares until 1936. Reaching 100 feet, glass cones within the Stourbridge area were commonplace. Today, it is the only complete glass cone in the area and one of only four left in the United Kingdom. Glass manufacturing was once the lifeblood of the local community and a significant part of Britain's manufacturing strength. We welcome everyone to explore this rare structure and learn about the industry, people and products of the glass sector.
