SK5739 : The cliff behind Cliff Road

taken 7 years ago, near to Nottingham, Great Britain

The cliff behind Cliff Road
The cliff behind Cliff Road
The original Saxon burgh from which Nottingham developed was built on the sandstone bluff on which St Mary's Church and the Lace Market district now stand. The council houses of Cliff Road, hemmed in by the sandstone cliff and huge warehouses, were built on the site of one of the city's most notorious slum areas, Narrow Marsh. The diagonal brick wall at eaves level marks Malin Hill, an alley linking High Pavement and Bellar Gate.
