The surfaces were generated from the structural depth contour plots. Well control was applied after initial surface modelling.

Surfaces modelled are (numbers relate to stratigraphic order):

01 Variscan Unconformity
02 Base Warwickshire Group
03 Top Namurian
4 Top Dinantian
5 Caledonian Unconformity
