If you are a land owner looking to raise money for a good cause or just need a little extra to help through these troubled times, perhaps we can help with our well organised metal detecting group.
We are a small metal detecting syndicate always looking for land to search, the club is owned and run by Gary from Gary's detecting who is a well respected ambassador for the hobby.

Our metal detecting club how does it work ?
As a small metal detecting syndicate our aim is to put something back into the community and help local land owners financially, our club is 100% non profit making, all our donations go directly to the land owner who can either donate to charity or keep to help day to day running of your farm.

How many detectorists will there be ?
We like to keep our numbers between 10 and 15 people for one day which is between 9am and 4pm, most of us have been detecting together for over 15 years, all members are friendly and dedicated to the hobby with a great knowledge of history and the countryside, with up to date NCMD and FID insurance cover.

Larger digs from 30 -100 people can also be arranged if you have large plots of land if you wish to raise more money, the choice is yours and all options will be discussed during our initial meeting together.
All we ask is the chance is for Gary or one of our members to have a 1 to 1 chat with you, then if you want to make a decision at a later date, that's fine.

For us metal detecting is a hobby and not a form of income, we have very strict morals and won't leave your land divested of all metal, like a plague of locusts, neither will we disclose our meetings to people who are not in the syndicate, most land owners who have had us visit are more than pleased to see us again.
