Tyne and Wear HER(854): Marsden, New Road, flints - Details
Marsden, New Road, flints
Gibbs apparently recorded the discovery of scrapers, cores, flakes and chips at Marsden New Road, "in the cuttings near the railway station". There is a slight ambiguity in the way he set out this information, and he seems to conflate it with material from Hob and Joan Orchard (HER no. 853). Wymer notes a single blade/flake which is said to have come from Marsden Station, and to have been deposited in Craven Museum, Skipton, by Raistrick.
