Redbrook has a long history of metal-working, back to the copper works of the 1700s. The village name is derived from when the brook thro' the village looked dark red due to the local iron ore deposits.

Re Redbrook tinplate works see, as just one example;
https://www.redbrookvillage.co.uk/history.html

Young George and Henry's jobs demanded great skill and physical fitness in very difficult hot conditions.
This site has several old photos of Redbrook including the tinplate works, eg
