Could it be Newhall Rd for Road  :-\

Are you able to post a copy of the relevant part so we can have a look?

RD means Rural District. The Public Health Act (1872) mapped out England into Sanitary Districts, both Urban and Rural. The 1894 Local Government Act, turned the Sanitary boards into District Councils  but retained the division of those in Urban and Rural areas.
