Heath glass works and Heath House and Mary Stevens Park
« on: January 27, 2017, 01:19:27 PM »

I happened upon this information:

1691 The first recorded reference to a glassworks, when premises are mortgaged to a Thomas Dalton. (Heath Glass works)

Glassworks runs until 1891 under various owners from what I can see.

run by William Walker and Sons at some point? and then Mills Walker?

Some great information on there including all the various owners of the glass works over the years.

May be ask if we can copy the information on the GMB? It would be easy to copy and paste as it is all there.

Rather oddly it mentions an Edward Webb

and just in case in time, someone wants to look up more info there appears to be a plan here in the archives
