The post code for this event is SL9 8TU. SIGNS WILL BE OUT ON ARRIVAL. Please bring your own refreshments!  Safe journey all.

For this event which is of Saxon origin, our dig consists of 130 acres,  spread across 80 acres of grass paddocks and 50 acres of woodland and ancient park in Chalfont St. Peter, Buckinghamshire. The grass will all be cut by the time we arrive to detect.

Please note: The farmer has requested no dogs on this event. Please ensure you make other arrangements with your pet as we will not be able to make any exceptions if you arrive with one. 

On the land there has been a saxon settlement covering 5 paddocks and WWI/II gun emplacements.

This event was originally planned for last year and was fully booked but due to extreme weather conditions wear to re-schedule it.

It’s an incredibly exciting area to detect, so if you wish to go, please get your name done in plenty of time as we expect places  to be taken quickly!
Chalfont St Peter is a village and civil parish in Chiltern district in south-east Buckinghamshire, England. It is in a group of villages called The Chalfonts which also includes Chalfont St Giles and Little Chalfont.

At the time of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in 949 there was no distinction made between the three separate villages: the whole area was known as Ceadeles funtan, which is Anglo-Saxon meaning Caedele’s Fountain. The villages were however separated by 1237 when in manorial rolls Chalfont St Peter was referred to as Chalfund Sancti Petri.

Chalfont St Peter, in the hundred and deanery of Burnham, lies about five miles from Amersham, on the road to London, and nearly six miles from Uxbridge in Middlesex. The manor, which belonged to Missenden Abbey, was granted in 1536 to Robert Drury.

The village was first recorded around the seventh Century as an Anglo Saxon settlement along the river Misbourne by a spring and was called ‘Caedeles Funta’.

Please register below if you wish to attend. The event will start at 08:30 after a 5 minute briefing. Please ensure if you need to cancel, you remove your name from the register.
