Documentary Evidence


Sunderland Flint Glass Works were established to the east of Trimdon Street by Nicholas French in 1855, manufacturing pressed glass. They closed in 1873 when the works were transferred to Alfred Street in Millfield, the site being incorporated partly into the Trimdon Iron Works (HER ref. 5013) and partly reused for housing.
