Buildings Containing Furnaces
Image: Photo taken from the works “plain” during the 1945-1946 demolition. The old number 6 glasshouse occupies most of the picture. These buildings contained pot arches, a pot melting furnace, a flattening lehr and usually made extra white “spectacle” glass. In about 1918 the roof was destroyed by fire and the buildings were never used again for glassmaking. On the right can be seen the extra white warehouse comprising three storeys.
