Hi

You may be able to find more information on the location and history of the Hawkwell Tin Works from this site.
heritagegateway.org.uk
There is a description and brief history of the colliery and tinplate works. Apparently the colliery was connected to the tinplate works by a tramway. References to locations using OS maps is also provided.
"Know Your Place Gloucestershire" also is a useful site to locate old places and structures and compare the location side by side with modern maps.
There is a disused tip shown near the intersection of the A4151 and A4136. This was the site of the colliery.
At the intersection of Highview Road and A4136 there is a long row of connected terrace houses which were shown on the OS maps as "Hawkwell Cottages" .
Any queries, let me know.
