This event takes place near Baschurch in Shopshire and we have 100 acres of pasture opposite an area we detected previously. These fields have been previously walked over by the occasional sole detectorist but we consider them to be lightly scanned and only received the occasional visit.
Plenty found on our prvious visit to the other fields. Here are just a few pics taken on the day.
The English name Baschurch first appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Bascherche, and both names may derive from an Anglo-Saxon personal name Bass(a). Thus the name in Canu Heledd is a Brittonic version of an English name.
Local tradition holds that the Berth Pool and its ancient earthworks outside the village are the resting place of the legendary King Arthur.
In medieval times, several properties in the parish, including Adcote Mill, were owned by Haughmond Abbey near Shrewsbury.
A major feature of the village is All Saints’ Church which is one of the oldest standing structures in the village (perhaps the oldest). A timber church which burnt down is believed to have stood on the same site previously. Leading industrialist and builder Thomas Telford made numerous major alterations to the modern sandstone church.
This event is limited to 120 detectorists. Please regoster below and members will be updated on here and on Facebook when the limit is nearing maximum.
