This domain lies in southern and parts of south-west England, beyond the known southernmost limits of both the Anglian and Devensian ice sheets. The landscape is a product of numerous fluctuations from warm temperate to Arctic 'tundra' acting over a long period of time (since the Neogene).
The domain has limited cover of superficial deposits (~26%). Organic deposits form a negligible part of the area.
Localized development of peat may occur within the alluvial floodplains and in coastal areas associated with submerged forests.
