The hobby of metal detecting has changed a lot over the past decade, and the hobby now presents landowners with a fantastic opportunity to find historical items AND make a good income from allowing access to metal detectorists.
Groups such as ‘The Peaky Finders’ and ‘Metal Detectives’ run insured and well organised metal detecting events on set dates (usually a Sunday) detecting set areas of farmland. With usually 30 to 40 detectorists in attendance, all events are insured and marshalled.
Hundreds of items can often be recovered from buttons to buckles and coins and, on occasion even hoards from hundreds or even thousands of years can arise.
At the same time an income into the thousands of pounds can be generated for the landowner. In addition landowners also have a claim on any ‘treasure’ items, should they arise.
