HISTORY OF SEAHAM SEAGLASS

The Candlish glass and bottle works at Seaham, England was the source of most of the glass discovered on the beaches below the factory site. Discarded, broken or below standard glass, at the end of each day, was hurled from the cliffs and then tumbled, eroded and polished by the sea over many years. In it's day, the six bottle and glass houses formed the largest glass production facility in Europe and exported across the world. Everything from decorative glass items to the humble beer bottle was made at these glasshouses, and the volume of production meant that the volume of waste was also high, leading to Seaham and the adjoining beaches becoming a rich source of sea glass, even today, almost a hundred years since the factory was forced to close due to shortages of raw materials.

More information on John Candlish can be found on his Wiki page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Candlish , and the glassworks can be seen in this amazing archive, http://www.east-durham.co.uk/seaham/bottleworks/
