I would just like to say hello as I have not posted before and I have also just moved to Gisleham in Suffolk and wondered if there were any clubs around here.
I an not that experienced and would value any advice and help with the best ways to get permission to search on farmland etc. I guess you just find the owner and ask but I have never done this before.
Really I have only ever detected on beaches( spent three years in America so did a bit there) and on my own land.
Any advice gratefully received.

I'm from Lowestoft, there are no clubs around here, there was one up past Great Yarmouth that I enquired for once, and after several years heard nothing back, then they seemed to disappear. Other than that the nearest is Norwich, and I believe they have a waiting list you'd be on for the next 50 years.
Always thought Lowestoft needed a club but never had the knowledge or resources to try and start one.
Gisleham is a tough area for permissions (as i mention in other thread) I asked maybe 30 farms around there and got one permission, and then the farmer retired leaving his brother in charge who was against the hobby
So for me I am bound to the beach, unless I get some luck eventually, maybe I'll see you down there sometime?

Sounds like Gisleham is not going to be an easy place to get permissions but I will give it a try and if I get any joy I will let you know.
