Geological exposure
The western wall of Red Hill Cutting is the natural rock. This view shows that it was cut through the boundary layer between the underlying Bunter Sandstone and the overlying red mudstones and grey siltstones which are a feature of the district. It is probably the mudstones which give Red Hill its name, as it does to other 'Red' based names in the Nottingham surroundings.
