Hawksworth Grove, Newport
Hawksworth Grove, Newport
Houses on the east side of the street, viewed from Churchward Drive. Three adjacent roads in this area are named after Chief Mechanical Engineers (CME) of the Great Western Railway (GWR). The two in view here were named after:

Frederick Hawksworth (1884-1976) was CME from 1941. He was the last CME of the GWR, which became part of the nationalised British Railways in 1948.

George Jackson Churchward(1857-1933) was CME of the GWR from 1902 to 1922.
Fittingly, the three roads are adjacent to railway lines.
