At this point the A58 ring road splits to go north into
Beaumont Road and the A676 to
Rumworth. West of here is
Hunger Hill. The derivation of the name may be
from the personal name 'Knut' (as in Canute, King Canute) and 'sceaga' or
'shay' meaning copse, overall the copse belonging to Cnut. Early references
spell this Noteshaye and Nutshell.
