INDEX ABBREVIATIONS FOR ALDE VALLEY COMMUNITIES
The following community abbreviations are used within Reference-ID's for many of the resources catalogued in our Index.
— All the 70 or so Alde Valley communities (including hamlets, and even the uninhabited ones) are listed on our Maps page.
— The first three characters of a place-name are unique, except for ALD, BEN, CAM, DUN, REN and SAX, marked here with a double dagger (‡).
— The only other communities with inconsistent abbreviations are those for Blaxhall (BLX), the Glemhams (GGL and LGL), and Westleton (WS): see below.
— However, some places have additional two- or four-character abbreviations, also listed below.
— Abbreviations marked with an asterisk (❋) are (or, in some combinations, can be) not unique.
