Established in 1886, the Cannington Shaw No.7 Bottle Shop produced glass bottles by the thousand as an innovative world first. It put St Helens firmly in the middle of the global glass making map. After production stopped in 1918, the building was used as an air raid shelter during World War 2 and had sadly fallen into ill repair by the 1970s.
Thanks to brilliant local people and organisations, The No.7 Bottle Shop has a new lease of life. Together with St Helens Borough Council, Historic England and the people of our town, the Cannington Shaw Preservation Trust CIC is regenerating and repurposing this fascinating listed building into a rich community hub.
We were delighted to work with the Preservation Trust to design and develop a responsive website for the project. Featuring project information and a historical timeline, the site also includes an interactive map and gallery showcasing where Cannington Shaw & Co glass has been discovered around the world.
