If only
« on: June 13, 2017, 04:04 »
In the Cotswolds, UK, at the moment staying in a house next to the village pub. The owner of the house has decided to extend the back of the house which was once the beer garden to the pub.
If I only had my detector I'm sure a coin or two would be found as the builder who is excavating the garden has found a few lovely old bottles and is dumping the dirt at the local farm.
As said.........If only........

We have regular posts from English detectorists,
Maybe a personal message would get you a local contact or call a shop and ask for local club info?
Magazine at news stand...
Feeling desperate for you Notalot.... maybe I need help not you..... ???

And a bottle dump, you'll have half the relic rats on the forum asking to visit soon.

I'll get some pics up today so you can see what I mean.
The lady of the house is a fan of the BBC TV show The Detectorists, I explained that the forum members were already packing their bags to get over here.
I have also been up to Scotland, while on my travels I have been following the footsteps of Deep Digger Dan, who at this time is also there. Have a look at his YouTubes, Digging the Coast 365, he is a bit of a character, but a laugh!!!!!!
Cheers!

No detector.... Off to the local hardware for some fine wire and a shovel for you. You will not need water to wash the finds... I can hear you drooling from here.

No detector?  How could you leave home without it?  Could at least have taken a pinpointer.

Spent a morning Mudlarking on the Thames foreshore today in London. NO, I didn't pay the 35 British Pound for a permit. I think this is disgusting to charge such an amount by the London Port Authority, for a couple of hours on the beach.
I know that ignorance is no excuse, but the PLA would have had a fat chance of getting the money  out of me.
Anyway, found a few little bits, Photos to follow.

One of the best sites on Mudlarking the Thames is on Facebook, search London Mudlark.
Laura's book should be out next year.   Sounds like Notalot has been busy living the dream.

I was around the Greenwich area of the Thames and met a few fellow Mudlarkers there, all great people, and as mad as I.

Lots of pipe stems, but an unbroken pipe bowl was very hard to find. If you are interested in pottery there is a myriad of bits to be found.

I did manage to find these dress pins, hand made, 14th- 17th century, very hard to see.

Off again tomorrow, Venice next stop.
