The National Glass Centre  in Sunderland is a focal point for glass and glass making in Britain. Sited on the river Wear it   is part of the Faculty of Arts, Design and Media at the University of SunderlandThe building sits on the site of the former J.L.Thompson ship yard.  Glass making in England was established in the locality in 674AD when glaziers from France brought the skill to the monastic community of Wearmouth.
