A red-brick tower at Mill Dam, dating from 1865

  • Description

    "A viewer has pointed out that this area was once the site of a glassworks, and the structure is described as a chimney on some maps. To quote him "The first Ordnance Survey (OS) map of the area in 1862 shows a large crane, landing stage, dock and the Subscription Brewery complex. The massive Swinburne Glassworks sat on what is now open grass to the north of the area, only the chimney base remaining today and now lowered in height"." Photo by Stanley Howe, 2011.
