List of other areas

This hilly area to the west of the River Exe is named after the red earth hill on which it is situated. It is found to the north-west of St Thomas, and stretches from roughly, Exwick Road to the top of the hill before Nadderwater.

The area was largely rural until after the last war. Since then, several large estates of council and private housing have been built. Many of these houses have some very fine views across the Exe, to the city. Probably the oldest building is Redhill's Hospital, which has recently been refurbished for apartments.
