Land surveys using a metal detector :

You may be living or working on an ancient settlement or even possibly a pot of gold !!!
Without the aid of a metal detector and skilled operator you may never know.
Perhaps ancient maps have strange field names which have interested you for years, drop me a line to discuss any questions you may have.

Working with Land owners and charity projects
metal detecting finds

If you own some land and looking to raise money for a good cause, or just finding times hard at the moment please drop me a line.
 I can organise non profit metal detecting meetings on the land of your choice, from groups of 5 to 50 detectorists, all dig members will be genuine  professionals and fully insured with NCMD or FID memberships.
Dig information :
 All finds will be shown to the land owner if requested. The maximum hole size for pasture and crop is 6" x 6" square and no more than 8" deep. All holes will be filled in perfectly regardless of terrain.
 All iron and junk recovered will be taken away from site, all dig fees will be paid to the land owner before detecting or directly to the nominated charity with documentation.

Removing nails and metallic contamination from horse training arena's :
