Audio/visual unsynchronised 

While Mr Jerome is initially trying to dissuade Kipps from staying in town, there is a point where Kipps tells Jerome, "I don't expect to be finished until Friday at least." Even seen from behind, it is clear his mouth continues to move after the sentence is finished.

Anachronisms 

Kipps travels by train, with Antimacassars showing N&CR. This can only be Newcastle & Carlisle Railway, but this was absorbed into the NER in 1862, 40 years before the film's setting. Also, the locomotive is a Southern U class, which did not venture that far north.

In the last scene, the train has a post-grouping (1923) Class G headcode (light loco), but it should have a pre-grouping Class A (express passenger) headcode.

Character error 

When Mr. Daily leaves Arthur to Eel Marsh, he refers to Spider the dog as a girl. When someone tries to enter the house and Spider barks at the door, you can clearly see that Spider is actually a boy.

Continuity 

When Arthur emerges from the muddy marsh, his entire head should be covered in mud. However, there is a clean outline around his mouth where he had obviously been breathing through a snorkel.

At 54 min 40 secs, Arthur Kipps puts down his axe to tear wallpaper off. After tearing the paper off he steps back 2 or 3 steps and reads the inscription. The next shot shows him holding the axe again but he never bends down to pick it up.

(at around 16 mins) The ground level views show the carriage on a winding/curving causeway/road whilst the ground level shots show it on a straight one.
