Cannington Shaw Bottle Shop, Site of Sherdley Works - St Helens

Late C19 tank furnace glass shop, with oval 'chimney' and remains of furnace heating system. Derelict since closure of the works in the late 1980s; it is now badly overgrown, with structural deterioration. An structural survey is to be carried out to establish condition. A local Friends Group have now established themselves as a Community Interest Company and are campaigning to save the structure.
