FYI The vast majority of wickets comprise copious qtys of loam, normally surrey loam spread in early October after scarifying all the grass from the wicket. Good groundsman wiil take Soil samples that regularly show 20 layers of loam I.e 20 years worth. I believe taunton over the years have used surrey mainly with some strips using other varieties to see what happens.

Thetefore the only real difference is watering weather and drainage when comparing taunton to lords or old trafford
