Will be back Metal Detecting again :)

Post by MikeyP » Mon Mar 19, 2018 4:13 pm

Been a good 4 years since i have had chance, always found it hard getting permissions, or it was a long way away.

But have just started renting a flat above a double garage on a farmhouse :D, and the Farmer/landowner has said i can go anywhere i want :D. Not sure how many acres he has, need to get some finer details from him, and i was thinking of printing a Sat view of the area, and get him to mark his fields and sign it, incase anyone stops me.

Just need some better weather lol :( either not stopped raining or snowing recently, fingers crossed for a better April

Great news! I actually used a screen shot from Google Maps of my current permission and then in edit on my phone got the land owner to tick all her field it was perfect.

Good for you. When asking for permissions I also print off an A4 photo of the area and along with the landowner mark all of the permitted areas, fields etc so there's no confusion about where I can detect. I also take any finds of interest to show the landowner, just to be polite really. Some of them are interested, but others not really bothered (unless, of course, there was any monetary value I should think). As I do the detecting for my local history society, it does, I think, help with permissions but still not all of them are forthcoming. Good hunting!

Straight out of your door and onto the land - how good is that! I found that the farmers on my three permissions already had maps with their field detailed and numbered. I just send a text saying I will be on G34 - G38 today. Of course, you only need to knock on the back door. Hopefully he will have friends that will also allow permission. Good luck! ::g
