Not so much a contribution more of a request. Can anyone within the group assist me in an attempt to find suitable areas within Hadleigh and Thundersley to carry out my developing hobby? I have written to Salvation Army Farm to seek their permission to prospect on their land without response.
Are there any members of the group who are indeed prospectors themselves? I am a registered member of the NCMD and as such fully insured. Hoping that someone can help me in my quest.
[Editor’s note: NCMD is the National Council For Metal Detecting. NCMD membership requires each member to adhere to the NCMD Code of Conduct. Among other things, this requires the reporting of all unusual historical finds to the landowner, and acquaintance with the NCMD policy relating to the Voluntary Reporting of Portable Antiquities in England and Wales. Such reporting would be through the Portable Antiquities Scheme by telephone or through their website at https://finds.org.uk]
