Detecting in Lincolnshire
« on: January 26, 2012, 10:29:24 PM »
Anybody from Lincolnshire area, as EJ and I plus tiny digger person are going down there on a fact finding holiday on the local areas in April.
I don't think there is anybody on the forum from there, if this is so we will have to grab a permission I hope when we get there.

Aye

Hi Acoustic

May be possible answers to your query as a post has arrived on Rogers Relics forum similar to yours ;)

Im off to look at a house in lincolnshire today - a village called Gedney, near Spalding.

an obviously key question when considering buying a house- is whats it like for detecting in this neck of the woods - the wash is only 6 or 7 miles away so beach work might be back on the cards, but I think its reclaimed fens all around so unsure what might be beneath my feet

is there anyone local that can enlighten me?


Tis a small world right enough ;D

A good detecting friend of mine, from Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire, went to a rally on the coast not far from Gedney, about two years ago. He said the small field  where the rally was held was on the coast next to a medieval church , he said it was not well attended, and over 40 hammered coins came up that day, he had 7.

 PS King Johns treasure lies in the marsh ground near Spalding, that should keep you busy for a while...   LOL.

Certainly know how to wet a persons appetite, lol.

I see Gedney is an old drove route so by what you say for such a small place it certainly has had a few people tramp across it.

King Johns treasure, lol, I would settle for a nice hammered
