Tyne and Wear HER(2592): South Shields, Cold Well - Details
South Shields, Cold Well
Water Supply and Drainage
Water Storage Site
A possible site associated with glassmaking is marked on a map of South Shields and Westoe of 1768 as "Cold Well used to make Glass", but no other information is given, so the site could be a sand quarry, for example rather than a glassworks. Two wells and a pump are marked on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map of the area, which is now known as Cauldwell.
