The 1:625,000 scale Bedrock North and South maps (the ‘ten-mile’ maps) are well-known to all in the geological community, and are one of BGS’ most popular publications. These maps are perfect for students and for anyone seeking an overview of the geological structure of the UK. The South map covers England, from the Lake District southwards, and Wales.
This new and updated fifth edition presents the latest map data at 1:625,000 scale. Areas of the UK benefitting from more detailed coverage include the Chalk of England and Wales, and the Precambrian of the North-West Highlands and the Grampians. The key has been completely re-designed to allow regional geological complexities to be better illustrated. UK cross-sections are presented on the maps, to a depth of around 15 km.
