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
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.
