Metal detecting

The council does not permit metal detecting on council land.

Our view is that any artefacts of historical significance should be left undisturbed until they can be fully examined as part of a properly organised archaeological investigation.

In this way, the heritage value of any buried archaeology is more likely to be preserved until it can be fully realised.
