A lone glass cone at Lemington, near Newcastle-on-Tyne.
As factories developed during the late C18th and C19th, the central and most substantially constructed building was often that which housed either the source of power (such as a boiler house) or the heating process central to the factory's work.
This brick cone is all that remains of the Lemington glassworks and would once have been at the nub of a whole gaggle of industrial buildings. It now stands at a road side a short distance from the local power station.
