In April, 2010, David (me) from OdysseySeaGlass.com wrote,
"Some have wondered where the sea glass on the famous Seaham beach in England came from.
"Obviously, there was some kind of glass manufacturer because of the variety of colors and blends not normally found on you average beach.
"If some of you who are knowledgeable about sea glass in the Seaham area could weigh in here, that would be really appreciated by all of us.
"Of course, 99% of us will never get there to see for ourselves, but we like to conjecture about it!"

We had a number of excellent and informative responses on several of our pages here at OdysseySeaGlass.
Since we get submissions from our readers, some of whom live near Seaham, and these submissions come in a different times, the information on Seahams history and other information is scattered over several different pages.
Until the time (far in the future), when I can consolidate all these pages and information, you can read through the following submissions.
The original bottle manufacturing done in Seaham area reached its prime under a famous local man, John Candish. Several of his descendants have contributed to the information found in the comment sections on these pages.
I would recommend starting with the comments at the bottom of this page. Read them from the bottom up (oldest is at the bottome).
Then... The following page is also a must-read if you are searching for information on the background of Seaham Glass and its beaches.
When reading the comments at the bottom of these pages, you might want to read from the bottom up (oldest comments are at the bottom) in order to make sense of the more recent comments.
