A short audio tour to introduce you to the site of the iconic Red House Glass Cone, in Wordsley, Stourbridge. This is a Grade II listed building that was the home of the famous Stuart Crystal lead-crystal tableware. Now open to the public as a museum, it preserves and showcases the history, architecture, and heritage that is Stourbridge Glass.
