HI

Littledean Hill area is a mile due south of the Tingle Level - they lived and worked close by
(marked top middle of map referenced below)

Regulator Colliery, including Regulator, Waterloo, Oak and George's Folly Gales
Map ref SO 6520 1480 George's Folly

top left hand corner Hollyhill Wood and Tormentor colliery are marked - Georges Folly is probably the shaft nearest the edge of the map.

https://maps.nls.uk/view/109725355 Tormeadow colliery marked upper right corner, again old shaft workings to the north is the area where Georges Folly was , on the edge of Holly Hill inclosure.

Today this is Upper Bilson / Bilson Green part of Cinderford, where Valley rd heads toward Steam Mills - area also known as Whimsey after the colliery there.
