Abstract

Areal specialization and increasing concentration into fewer but larger units of manufacture have been characteristic features of the development of the British glass industry. These trends have been particularly apparent in the flat glass branch, with the total dominance of Pilkington's in St Helens. Means of transportation, both of materials and products, and proximity to consumption points have been significant economic factors in the changing locational patterns. Technical innovations have had important effects upon location as well. Such changes have imposed greater spatial restrictions and these have been acutely felt in the container branch of the industry.
