no name on it just the number 12 stamped on the top,
it was very heavily encrusted when found
we could only just make out what it was,
it must have been in the water for a long time
i would love to no how long, and where it came from.

The clay pipe is a amazing find, I do a lot of river digging and Bottle dump digging and have only ever had the smaller later pipes complete. The odds of a complete example on a beach must be near impossible. Bet it was hard keeping it intact the time you carried on detecting. ::g

Stu yeah its pretty incredible find ....never even found any part of a pipe before so i was soo chuffed especially as on the beach i never worry about how i dig the holes
their had been some big storms just before i found it and there was a lot of new sand on the beach ...the pipe had a lot of black staining on it but was in clean sand so i'm guessing it had been buried for a while and had been churned up in the storm and deposited at the top of the beach ...how it survived that let alone me digging it up is amazing

Had a walk down to the Valley on Saturday Stu and picked up every bullet I found and still had plenty of of room left in the finds pouch. It was not long ago that I was leaving them behind because of the weight I was carrying.

What did you do with it all Stu ? I used to pick up all the 20mm shell rifling rings for scrap but didn't realise the other stuff had any use or value. Perhaps I have missed a trick there ;;z

It,s been a strange year with early finds still turning up from the coast. Do you think the Celts were on the beach for a while or come out of the cliffs with all the recent coastal erosion. Some very good beachs in Kent. I still do well down there when I visit my parents for a few days ::g
