Kimberley Railway Cutting near Nottingham is recognised by the Geological Conservation Review as a site of special interest for the study of palaeozoic palaeobotany.  Grid reference SK506454 

Much of the cutting, which originally carried the Northern line has been filled in and is now covered in housing.  But a short section remains open and reveals excellent sections of Permian sandstone.  Here are some pictures.
