The Red House Glass Cone, Wordsley was built at the end of the 18th century. It was used for the manufacture of glass until 1936 and is now one of only four cones left in the UK (and the most complete in Europe).

Reaching 100ft into the sky this glass heritage visitor attraction is an impressive site on the Stourbridge landscape and an integral part of the historic Stourbridge Glass Quarter.
