Heading out Southend/Chalkwell beach tomorrow

Post by Mintyx2 » Sun Apr 01, 2018 1:15 pm

Hi peeps.
I'm gonna be heading down on beach tomorrow morning Southend or Chalkwell (weather permitting) for couple of hours. Low tide I think is about 9am so I reckon I'll be starting about 6:15/6:30
Anyone fancy it ????

Hi
Was thinking about East beach but don't no if that might cause concern as that's right next to mod land . I'll have a chat with a mate of mine who works on coast guard there see if he knows any info. You've got all the coastline that runs round the old Shoebury garrison which has now been rebuilt for homes but I'm sure the beach area is still under mod.

Yes I was down by Risk in hotel stretch Nd just consentrated on the soft sand where I thought people were likely to sit and around and along the wall areas where people would sit or jump down on beach. I wouldnt mind trying to get out this weekend but might be late afternoon due to tide times etc.

Got out this morning only for an hour to try out Teknetics Omega. I went down on beach by Sea life centre and trying out machine as it's a tad different to my laser hawkeye but started to learn a bit on Teknetics. Only found 1/2 pence piece , £1 coin and a 20 pence piece and usuall ring pulls etc. But I think I'll get the hang of the Teknetics sooner or later. Gonna head up near casino area on beach early tomorrow morning and have another practice run for couple hours.

I hope the pound coins were the new variety! Not a bad haul for a half hour. Good Luck with the next half! Regards ss47

Yeah weather is looking good so I'll be getting into the swing about 6am . Parking along seafront is free up to about 8:30 I think so I'll prob dump motor in sea life car park or other side of pier. So might see you.

Popped down to Southend beach for a wander early this morning. Conditions were lovely for a change, no rain, or freezing wind. ::g
About the first ten holes were a mix of molten ali or ring pulls. Thoughts off a blanket blank cross my mind. However perseverance paid off and a few coppers came to light. The second to last hole I pulled a 1944 threepence out of the mud.
My word that tide creeps in quick if you not looking. :D

Loving the thread...had the first wedding do at the Rossalyn.

Mud.... dangerous game down there, tide goes out a mile & a third & comes in very fast. ::g

Not to far usually just beyond the groins, certainly not out with the bait diggers. Doggy stuff that mud, wellies required as I found out last week, quick reverse required. :D

Just around the edge of the groins the clay sits about a foot below the mud. I used to find lots of silver on top of the clay. ::g Also got my worst ever sunburn there! B|

You got your worst ever sunburn just around the edge of the groins? I may have forgotten my spade before, however, never failed to get dressed below the waist, crikey :D

I might head back and plant a few old style pound coins for you :)) . ...
I was hoping to go again this weekend but low tide is slap bang when the sun seekers will be down the seafront and I reckon will be rammo especially with weather forecast being nice , so might have to pass . Unless Mrs lets me go late night hunting.

Hi all.
I'm gonna give the beach another hit this weekend ( nice and early) . Been using Teknetics Omega and it's performing pretty well on beach. I've just picked up a second hand cscope 6mxi that I might have to try out down there. I've just sold my beloved laser hawkeye , im gonna miss it but fancied a change.
