Land Available and Ground Conditions
There will be a minimum of two hundred acres of land. Please note there has been a couple of local detectorist who has had permision to detect here, but I have been assured that by no means has this parcel of land been heavily detected. The soil is medium / heavy
The land owner if time and whether permitting will have the fields cultivated and in an acceptable condition for detecting, however there could be some stubble.
This land is on the Higher Level Stewardship scheme, which means for us, it is strictly forbidden to detect on grass margins around the fields, or on the camp-site pasture.
All bridle ways and foot paths which there is on this parcel of land, is also forbidden to detect on.
This parcel of land that we have got the privilege to hold this event on lays almost slap bang in the middle of three very ancient market towns, Wymondham (pronounced Windham ) Attleborough, and Hethersett and all of Anglo-Saxon origin. The city of Norwich only being approximately 6 miles due east of our location.The area has a wealth of ancient history, and as I always say for more in depth history go on to Google and you will find it very interesting.
Now it's down to you to make your own decision to attend or not, and there are no guarantees that you will have finds. Remember, metal detecting is like a lottery, there are always winners and looser s, but it will be a good social detecting fun weekend if nothing else.
Ordinary Raffle Draw, all profits from this draw will go to the Haemophiliac Society
This raffle will be held over the weekend with many detecting prizes and general prizes. Any donations for the raffle will be greatly appreciated. Hand in to the stall on the day. Purchase of tickets for this draw will be on sale in the marquee throughout the weekend until mid day Sunday.
Grand Raffle Draw, all profits from this draw will go to the Haemophiliac Society
Up for grabs as usual will be a mid to top range detector.
Tickets will be on sale at £5.00 per ticket, nowhere else you can buy a detector for that price, so don't be shy bring plenty of cash with you.
Draw tickets will be on sale through out the week end, available at the rally marquee.
The draw will take place midday Sunday 8th September 2019 at the rally marquee.
Terms and Conditions
The landowner grants a licence to enter the fields specified during the following period of time, from midday Thursday 5th to 5.00 pm Sunday 8th September 2019 and for the sole purpose of metal detecting for items whether ancient or modern.
The land owner also reserves the right to make any changes to the terms and conditions or make any cancellations without any prior notice.
In the unlikely event, that the event is cancelled out of the organisers control, then there would be a complete refund.
Notes on Finds
Finds over 300 years old and over £500 in value and items subject to the Treasure Act 1996 are to be divided 50/50 with the landowner.
To build and retain a good relationship with the land owner PLEASE show all finds. There will be a finds cabinet to display finds in at the rally marquee. Share the unearthed fascinating history of your finds as nobody is going to take them away from you (obviously unless subject to the Treasure
Act 1996 ).
This can only earn acceptance for our return trips and encourages the rest of us to try harder.
The local FLO will be invited along with our own in house specialists.
The land owner respectfully requests the following:
1. Due to the location of the camp sight being in ear shot of local residents,we ask that noise is kept to a bear minimum, and to respect our neighbours. Remember we are guests and I am in no doubt you will as always in the past adhere to this request.
1. No entry into woodlands.
2. All holes to be filled in.
3. Entry to the specified fields indicated by the rally organiser via proper entry routes, not through hedgerows please.
4. No telephone calls to the landowner requesting return detecting.
5. All rubbish to be put in bins/bags/skip provided.
6.Barbecues, only those that are above ground level and those that are higher enough of the ground so as not to scorch the grass.
7. Please be aware that this land is also shared with other people by the way of public foot paths and horse riders, so please be courteous and polite.
Note Strictly no dogs are allowed to this event, due to game rearing, and I have been informed that the game will have been released prior to our arrival.
If you do turn up with your Dog, I'm sorry but you will be turned away.
General Note – In the event of a hoard, or important find coming up, the following actions are to take place.
The finder is requested to stop digging and inform the rally organiser (Kim Clarke Mobile 07504697077) who will cordon off the area and along with the FLO if present, decide on the necessary course of action.
This course of action is to acknowledge the identity of the finder and to preserve the historical record.
