Dixon-Nuttall seems to have sold his Ravenhead Bottle Works to Pilkingtons in 1859 and gone
into retirement. He returned to the bottle making business under the name of Nuttall & Co. on
March 2nd 1873, when the first sod was cut on his new works. This was on a site just south of
Ravenhead Colliery by the side of the recently-opened St. Helens-Huyton railway.
In 1913 Cannington, Shaw & Co. merged with Nuttalls to form United Glass Bottle Manufacturers
Ltd., although their individual brands continued.
The Ravenhead glassworks was closed on March 16th 2001 with 374 workers made redundant.
