Latest Metal Detecting Adventure

Latest Metal Detecting Adventure

The last time i went out to do some metal detecting I was stopped in my tracks, first by my usual site being under lock and key, then secondly, the other site I have had my eye on was too hard and steep to get to, it was also very bushy and thorny that i didn't want to put my dog through torture of it all just for me.

So yesterday i went back on my own. My curiousity got the better of me. I just had to see what was down down there. So after walking about 2 miles on foot i got to this site, climbed down the steep, uneven, thorny hill sides to be met with some seriously uneven ground, with deep pot holes here and there, which were much harder to spot because of the snow. Yes, it's been snowing here.

Looking at this site from the roadside I could not see how many moats were actually stopping me from getting to certain parts of the site. The moats are all joined together, but come to an end on the outskirts of the site, shaped like the letter "T", but not straight.

Anyway, once i got past all these obstacles there was some decent ground to do some metal detecting on. But while i was setting up my metal detector it became clear from looking around that this site was very trashy. Crisp packets, old bottles, FOIL! There was loads everywhere, but i hadn't come this far for nothing.

Well, actually i had in a way! I found nothing but rubbish! Moslty foil. I did get some good signals that all turned out to be junk of some sort. One signal i dug for about 10 minutes, which was pretty deep, and blocked by thick tree roots, ended up being an old rusted shandy can.

Most of the signals were foil, but it was still nice to get out there and do some metal detecting. And at least my curiousity about this site has been seen to. I really thought that this site could hold some treasure, but it wasn't to be. Don't get me wrong, there could be something good there, I didn't search it all, that's impossible in one day, but from all the junk i found, and how hard this place is to get to, i don't think i'll be going back there in a hurry.

The Garrett Ace 250 was the thing that impressed me most. It can pick up the smallest bit of foil, so small that it took me 5 minutes to find it!

Here are some photos of the metal detecting site. And an old can of shandy.












Until the next time..

Hi Jake, were the same age. The new "young" generation of metal detectors. Sorry to say, I'm nowhere near Wales..I'm actually in the West Midlands. Unless you know of somewhere inbetween, or even down by you. I would be willing to travel and make a day of it for a promising site that would make us rich!.

Just let me know, cheers
