Mudlarking is where you search for glass in the mud of rivers at minimal tide. Tons of amazing goods can be found, not just glass, but you can locate some lovely outdated bottles.  A lot more normally than not, they will be broken, but just at times you can pull a great piece out of the comfortable mud.

This is the place you will find the most unbroken glass bottles in all colours and dimensions (although largely clear and brown ones!)

Do put on gloves, and be watchful wherever you dig. I listened to about a person who went digging and caught the Black Death Plague! Luckily, it can be addressed very easily at present with modern antibiotics. Make confident you use durable gloves as you will appear throughout a large amount of broken glass and you want to safeguard your fingers.
