Modern Correlatives for Old Soil Series in England and Wales Soilsguide Home

During production of the National 1:250,000 scale soil map the 1,118 series used in previous Soil Survey of England and Wales publications were rationalised. 420 series names were redefined as other series. Sometimes these redundant series only had one correlative but more often there were two or three. The series map symbol is shown in brackets.

(* indicates that the correlative series is only rarely appropriate)
