Catcliffe Glass Cone can be found in Catcliffe and access is from the west side of Main Street.It was built around 1740 and is the oldest surviving structure of its type. William Fenney, came to Catcliffe to start his own works.Catcliffe was an ideal choice as William Fenney was able to ferry his goods by barge along the River Rother, also to take advantage of the newly opened canal system along the River Don. The glass works had two cones one which still stands today. The Cone is a Grade II Listed building and is one of only four that has survived out of more than 100 constructed in Britain during the 18th Century. As you pass through the village you will see the Cone dominating over the area.
