Want to learn all about detecting? Newbies (and others) Training/Detecting 2nd Feb 2020

Post by liamnolan »

The first event was held in Glos and was a great success. I have since received some requests for a second event but held more central, so more accessible. I have now moved to Lincolnshire and I have got something organised for Sunday 2nd Feb 2020 in Tealby. Look up Tealby pennies! It will be along the same lines as before, tuition/talks from the experts during the morning, then after lunch getting out onto some good land. All that would bring on a good thirst and Lincolnshire will not be found wanting re good beers and food. Sunday would probably be best for driving, tuition and lectures up to lunchtime and the afternoon out in the fields to see if there has been any improvements!
All in all I think we have the ingredients for a successful event. All profits to the Air Ambulance heroes. Hopefully continued support from the Detecting companies, usually roman/medieval finds pop up. Lincolnshire was part of the Viking conquest and Torksey was their first Winter Camp, though it was not all about fighting and Lincolns museum https://www.thecollectionmuseum.com/ has a wonderful array of detecting finds to illustrate. Lincoln was founded by the Romans of course and the City still has much evidence of that, mostly uphill where the majestic Cathedral and Castle are located.
Anyone wishing to be included on a provisional list please add your name below. Its a great way to learn more about this wonderful hobby and also get out onto some good land, Liam ::g

Thanks all, we have quite a while to go yet but better to have the event lined up way ahead. Fred, what would we do without your skills and knowledge? ::g ::g
Lincoln is a very roman area, Ninth Legion etc and so there should be roman coins coming up at least. The City is full of history, with the Norman castle supplanted on top of the roman fortress and the beautiful Cathedral itself, all uphill amidst the original roman town quarters.
Lets hope its stopped raining by then .. Liam :;@

Hello Liam
I attended this years event in Gloucester so I don’t suppose I am a newbie now but very keen.
So if possible I would like to attend please.
As you mentioned Lincoln cathedral this is a photograph I took when the pews were removed.
Just how it would have been in the Middle Ages.

Best regards
Fred

Wow! fantastic photo ::g I am told that the ceiling is so high that they occasionally get a sort of mist formation, would look fitting for all the angels up there. Liam :;@

Hi Liam,

I also attended the last session so no longer a newbie but would love to attend, and the opportunity to detect in an area far from home adds to the attraction!

Please can you put me down as a provisional?

Many thanks

This may be of interest Liam.

The famous Lincoln Imp.

Some time back I found a Brass shoehorn image of him while out detecting.

Happy Xmas and full finds pouches in 2010.

Love the shoehorn, ::g My father was from Lincoln and his story about Imp was that a mason was short changed with his wages and left his tools in the cathedral leaving muttering curses. The following morning the imp was found carved by the devil. :)

Then next day for anyone with some energy left, perhaps an invite onto my new clubs (LHSS) regular Digs. They are a friendly and welcoming lot, they even accepted me!! =))
All in all I think we have the ingredients for a successful event.

I'm newish to detecting and happy with how I'm getting on and my finds due to getting good advice on here but would be interested in attending and chatting/learning from other Nox users etc as am really enjoying it. My 14 year old daughter often comes out with me and would also like to attend if this is possible?

Hi Colin, you and your daughter will be most welcome ::g Its a family forum and many members get out with sons, daughters etc. The first similar event over near Bristol proved a great success and I am sure we will have another great day here in Lincolnshire. I moved up from Norfolk over a year ago and had to start all over re getting land, new club etc but things have fallen into place, landowners part with land as long as I promise to stop talking and the local area is rich in history.
Its a morning tuition, then lunch and then out onto some land. I am in contact with a landowner right now and if that works out then you will not be short of finds ::g
This event is to help newcomers get started up quickly and understand the equipment, how to use the functions, plus the skills of detecting out in the fields.

Thats great thanks

I think it's important to have these.kind of events as when you are a newbie it can be a bit overwhelming and you can see why.some people probably give in but with the right advice etc it is one of the most enjoyabe and interesting hobbies. We all go out detecting as a family and its nice to find a hobby the whole family can participate in whilst also being out in the fresh air which is good for the kids.

Thanks again, we are looking forward to it
