Post 1988 Agricultural Land Classification (ALC) site survey data – scanned original paper maps and survey reports for individual sites surveyed in detail between 1989 and 1999 by the Ministry of Agriculture Fisheries and Food. Where Grade 3 is mapped this includes the subdivision of Grade 3 into subgrades 3a and 3b.

Revised guidelines and criteria for grading the quality of agricultural land (MAFF, 1988)":http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/20130402151656/http:/archive.d.... Individual sites have been mapped at varying scales and level of detail from 1:5,000 to 1:50,000 (typically 1:10,000).
