The Glass Maker

The Glass Maker, 12 Crown Glass Place, BS48 1RD, Nailsea

Description

This was built in the 1970s as part of Nailsea’s new shopping precinct and closed in early 2010. Its name is a reminder of Nailsea’s long-lost glass-making industry. The Glassworks was one of the largest in the country, producing mainly crown glass for windows and bottles, hence ‘Crown Glass Place’.

The Glassworks was one of the largest in the country, producing mainly crown glass for windows and bottles, hence ‘Crown Glass Place’. The works closed in 1873. Much of the site is now under the Tesco car park. A glazed ceramic mural on the car park side of the supermarket shows how Crown Glass was made in Nailsea.
