Thanks. That could well be the source. "The Late-glacial reoccupation
of the British Isles and the Creswellian" by R. N. E. Barton, R. M.
Jacobi, D. Stapert3 And M. J. Street, Journal Of Quaternary Science
(2003) 18(7) 631–643 says "Approximately 24 find spots in England and
Wales have yielded Cheddar points, which, in view of the apparently
diagnostic character of this artefact type, should indicate a
Creswellian presence. Their number includes the new location of
Bradgate Park and several other open-air locations, most notably
isolated finds including Oare (Kent), Mildenhall (Suffolk) and Heacham
(Norfolk). If a broader definition of the Creswellian is allowed, by
including characteristics such as the presence of blades with butts en
e´peron (Jacobi, 1997), then the number of findspots can be increased
to about 35,"
But that's 11 years old. Still it's better than the 1977 report.
