Am I allowed

Post by orion » Sun Jan 06, 2013 9:00 pm

Evening all. Just would like to know if I'm allowed to detect on land if it has a scheduled castle, but this castle is in private grounds and the owner said yes I can :-/ and his house is listed

If the land you wish to detect on is scheduled then it would be illegal to detect on the land, no matter what the land owner says......

Thx for letting me know. So would that mean I wouldn't be allowed to do the garden on his house.

You need to check to see if the garden is included in the scheduling, if it is then not a chance.....

As you can see such a beautiful place, if only :( . I think I will call him and ask him if his garden is scheduled. The castle was built in the 1300's and has older walls around the owners garden. Shame

I got declined a permission a few weeks ago. The farmer whos land it was previously let people on his land to detect then he got in trouble himself because there are remains of a scheduled monument or something on his land. ;;z ;;z

Is that right? I never come across anything about having to be 50 mtr from the edge of a scheduled site. I thought the edge of with was the edge you could detect up to. Not that I have been that close to a scheduled site myself.

Go to this site
http://magic.defra.gov.uk/website/magic/

Select 'Design My Own Topic' in the topic section, and in the pop-up that appears choose 'Scheduled Monuments', and then click 'Done'.

Then add the postcode or grid reference etc. of the site and the resulting Map will show you which bits you cannot detect on.

Using this map you might be able to get the landowner to talk to his neighbours, whose land may NOT be scheduled, to see if they will let you detect?

The land surrounding this site is worth having a go at, as long as you stick to the bits you are allowed to detect :)

Good luck!

The English Heritage Map is much easier to use than the Magic Map: http://list.english-heritage.org.uk/mapsearch.aspx

You can detect a scheduled site - IF YOU HAVE WRITTEN PERMISSION FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE OR ENGLISH HERITAGE - but that is highly unlikely. You can detect up to the boundaries, but it's advisable to allow 5-10 metres of leeway to be safe, boundaries can easily be mistaken. Don't know where the 50 Metre claim comes from, but it's not true.
Recent finds: Papal Bulla of Clement V, Mary Groat, James 1st Scottish 20p, Republican Silver Denarius 130BC, Trajan Silver Denarius, Edward VII Hammered Shilling.

Yeah I posted that link above. Thanks for clearing up the 50 meter thing, don't know why it rang a bell!?
Still advisable to give scheduled areas a wide berth....... ::g

probalby did'nt word it right but the boundary i am sure is about 50 metres away from the sute in either direction .only its we have a site on my companies land and we cannot go within 50 metres of it.and its wise keeping a good distance rather than going the wrong side of it. and 50 metres is not that far really. and sometimes the boundries are not very well defined
