Abstract Westphalian A-C coal-bearing strata and red-beds in the Pennine Basin of Central and Northern England contain a wide variety of palaeosols. In coal-bearing facies associations alluvial, gley, semi-gley, organic and rare well-drained palaeosols reflect the predominance of poor drainage conditions during deposition. In red-beds more evolved ferruginous and ferallitic palaeosols testify to free drainage conditions during deposition. Catenary relationships can be inferred between most of the palaeosols in both facies associations, providing further information on the palaeogeomorphology of the depositional systems, and assisting in the understanding of the environments and conditions of coal seam formation.
