We are pleased to have secured this section of a fantastic area for the day for our non-members and look forward to an interesting dig. With miles of undetected pebbles, and what looks like what could be round houses to the right of our permission in the picture below, we are sure this event will be rapidly filled. So get your names down quickly to avoid disappointment!
In view of the fact we have occasionally restricted some events to members only, this is a special day out for all those who haven’t joined us as full or basic members! If you are a member, please do not ask to attend as there are no exceptions!
Chesil beach is a popular holiday beach so those interested in ring-pulls and foil will certainly be in for a treat as it is a certainty that they will be in abundance. Please ensure all pebbles are replaced in the hole after removing your finds.
As you can see from the aerial picture below taken in 1764, there are some very interesting lines and markings, possibly early medieval or even Roman. What looks like a Ridgeway can be clearly seen on the higher slope of the permission.
We are also fortunate to be near what are considered some of the most interesting castles in the UK which are located near this beach and we have arranged for our non-members to detect all around them, under caution of not damaging any of the structures when swinging their detectors.
These are just a few of the finds from a nearby location which we are sure will whet the appetite! Finds include silver AND gold medieval ring-pulls, shaped foil probably used for shooting wildlife, 17C Levi button and various weights.
Obviously due to the location, excellent conditions and historical interest we will have to charge a small premium to the usual non-members fee of £20, so to attend this event we will require an up-front payment of £70. This will include a ZOOM, a MIVVI or a FAB from the ice-cream van we have arranged to be on site between 05.00 and 05.30 on the day.
For anyone who is allergic to dairy products, there will be a gherkin option!
Please note, no arrivals prior to 07:00
Admin for this event will be Jeff (pictured below) who will be checking your NCMD/FID on arrival.
