This web site is intended as an educational resource for anyone interested in the reasons why we use the current muddle of measurement units in the UK, and what we should be using in the future.

It is a work-in-progress project that attempts to document the history and past processes of metrication in the UK, across the many diverse sectors where it has already been carried out successfully.

Its main purpose though is to provide encouragement to anyone wanting to help complete the UK’s metrication programme.

For those in a position to influence government policy, this web site provides information on how the completion of metrication might best be carried out.
