    I'm a little confused as to the history of this company, as on the modern Pearce Cutler website it states they were founded in 1815, but the history stops there. I then found that the Wetherspoons pub on Broad Street, the Solomon Cutler is named after the founder. "Regency Wharf stands mainly on the site of Pearce & Cutler’s Glass Works. Cutler’s was founded by Soloman Cutler, in 1854. His son, Ephraim, expanded on to this Broad Street site and later amalgamated with his neighbour’s land."

    The Pope Street works have escaped all history online though, but if I were to hazard a guess I'd say it shut 1998/99. With the first photos I've been able to find are by Virusman in 2007(?)

    The exterior sign's now gone, which surprised me a little. Unless an explorer's got it on their wall at home :p I can't see security taking it down, as they've done sod all else to the place. Oh well.

    The glass staircase is well and truly wrecked, which is a right shame, I would love to have seen it in one piece.

    One of the two large workshop areas. The doors in the far left corner would have opened on to Pope Street.

    The bookcase at the end appeared to have catalogues/brochures/leaflets on some, and parts on the others.

    This may have been a part of a larger piece of machinery. Maybe something that used water propulsion?

    What seemed to be the main staff notice board. Letters from waste disposal companies along with company memos pinned here.

    One of the offices off the largest workshop's had been torched. Nothing left but a filing cabinet and these on the wall.

    I found these on the wall in the kitchen. I'm amazed they've survived. What are the chances they were made here?

    In the plant room. Although I'm not too sure what it is.
