Hello wheelbarrow, I think your lack of replies comes from being such a broad metal detecting question which covers so many different aspects of the hobby....


If your thinking about metal detecting inland the very first thing to do before purchasing a metal detector is to make sure you gain permission ::g every square metre of land is owned by someone so gaining permissions is obviously very important, so many people purchase a machine then realise they have nowhere to detect :(
Here is a useful topic to get you started ::g viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2666


You can however metal detect many beaches owned by the Crown estate around our coastline if that is something that interests you ? They have a page here which contains maps showing where their beaches are ::g https://www.thecrownestate.co.uk/rural- ... detecting/
Another option is finding a MD club local to you ::g

Best of luck
mrix
