Scaffolding scales parts of Red House Glass Cone in next stage of restoration works

New pictures show the Red House Glass Cone as it has never been seen before as scaffolding scales parts of the 100 ft structure in an 18-month restoration project.

Drone imaging shows the scaffolding climbing the structure

Work began in July on the Grade II listed Wordsley building – which is one of four surviving glass cones in the UK – thanks to a £1.5 million investment.

Scaffolding has already been erected inside the structure, with work now moving to the outside in the next step of the project.

Specialist framework can be seen climbing the historic building, which was built in the period between 1788 and 1794.
