Just from a glance at the map you can see that most of our parishes lie on fairly sandy soil (2) while those to the north-east lie on more clayey soil. Usually clayey soil is better for arable. It will be interesting to test this.
You'll see that there is a gap in the extreme south-west. That is the county of Cornwall, which I wasn't originally going to include. But it looks as though the thesis of 'market integration' is going to be something we'll run with, so Malcolm is working on that data now. That will bring our total number of observations to nearly eight hundred.
