Tyne and Wear HER(883): Cleadon, flints - Details
Gibbs included Cleadon in his list of flint sites thus: "CLEADON. Sand pits. Bared surfaces and top gravel. Limpets and Artifacts". Miket equates this with the "rolled flints" recorded as coming from a raised beach. The find spot remains utterly obscure, but note that there were quarries on the site of Cleadon Park, south of Quarry Lane, in the middle of the 19th century.
