This view, from the site towards the Vale shows the profile of the basin that runs through the Estate formed thousands of years ago. In the bkgd is Mansfield Woodhouse and beyond. In the foreground is a block of red limestone found on site. It gets its colour from the iron oxide content that also imparts hard wearing qualities making it ideal paving. Trafalgar Square and Westminster use the same red limestone slabs sourced from Mansfield's quarries.
