Gnome search at Red House Glass Cone

Children have been putting their detective skills to the test at a popular attraction.

Families have been flocking to the Red House Glass Cone in Wordsley to take part in a free gnomes and fairies trial.

The trial, which runs throughout half term and finishes on June 3, is the first of its kind at the attraction on High Street.

The free event allows youngsters to explore the site and hunt down the gnomes which are hidden around.

Lying in the heart of the Stourbridge glassmaking industry, the Red House Glass Cone was built at the end of the 18th century and continued to product glasswares until 1936.

It is the only complete glass cone in the area and one of only four left in the UK.

Families have a chance to have a go at the gnome and fairy trail until June 3.

Youngsters can also have a go at a number of different crafts and watch glass blowing. Charge for crafts is £2.50.

Throughout half term, there also two bookable glass fusion sessions available allowing children aged five and over to make their very own magical designs in glass.

Bookings can be made by calling 01384 815571.
