Full Description

Flint waste has been collected on several occasions on the surface of a track in Ember Combe, a little northeast of where it crosses Ember Combe Water. The site was first reported by Mark Thole in 2010. Several waste flakes were collected during a site visit in 2011. They were found between 5 and 20 metres from where the track crosses the stream (from SS 85557 41814 to SS 85570 41821). None of the flint is diagnostic. [1]
