Red House Glass Cone

Red House Glass 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 was used for the manufacture of glass 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. With the aid of film, free audio guides, exhibits and live demonstrations, you can now explore the Cone's 200 years of glassmaking history. The cone has a large gift shop and is also home to a number of designer-maker studios. Glassmaking demonstrations take place from 1.30pm-3.30pm weekends, during school holidays and for pre-booked groups. Guided tours are available for a small charge and they must be booked in advance. The recently opened the Red Cone Coffee House offers an extensive menu including freshly ground coffee, real Belgian hot chocolate and a menu for children.

The Manor House Museum

Murder, grave robbing and insanity are all part of the story of this fascinating and unique building - the Manor House has seen it all. Built by Richard de Marnham in the 1270s, The Manor House is now probably one of the most important surviving medieval timber framed buildings in the Midlands and the most recent building to become part of Sandwell Museum Service. The construction of its great hall is thought to be the earliest of this type of construction in the country. The Museum had been a public house since the 1960s and when it first opened was an extremely prestigious venue, where footballers and VIPs would dine. The building is now back in the guardianship of Sandwell Council and looked after by Sandwell Museum Service. We are slowly turning the building into a heritage visitor attraction and for use for a variety of community projects and activities so new activities are happening all the time.
