Covid 19 Wales Update

27th May 2020

Today we are pleased to say that we received a reply from the Welsh Department of Culture and Sport confirming that detecting can be carried out in Wales within the standard exercise rules.

Before you rush out, please remember to check with the land owner that they are content to continue to provide permission at this time. Restrictions on travel, time spent outside exercising and social distancing must, obviously, be observed.

We hope that the lockdown review on Friday 29 May will provide a further loosening of restrictions. We, like you, await the First Minister’s announcement with optimism.

A full description of the current exercise rules in Wales can be found here:

Nice one Smiley

I'm still not sure if people in Wales are allowed out yet - there was some talk that the WAG were waiting until the bankholiday was over so that there weren't a billion people going to the beach..

I think in this case the problem is that the landowner isn't the one asking for things - it is his partner. In talking with his nephew (who I have known and worked with for 13 years), he said that basically they probably want a display so they can bring out at dinners to show their friends. When I showed the owner the gold hammered, he had some people round anyway and he showed them and they all made encouraging noises...not just about that but all the little things I found.

Quite rightly, I'm happy to provide locations of where I find things  - although there would be a limit to what I would record; I might indicate areas of massive amounts of rubbish; I think that would be useful for them.

I might see if I can put together a little group of things like the broken Georgian nutcracker, and the token, but as the nephew said, I go there in the hope of finding something - whatever that might be...

I agree and the bottom line says it all,, everything you find on any farmers land realistically belongs to the farmer,, if you want to build a collection to keep as soon as possible sort out the basics with landowner/farmer( remember Tennant farmers are not entitled to any finds but there landlord is,, very tricky situation especially regarding council owned farms)  get a contract in place wherever possible piece of mind for you and them  and hey if they then allow other people to detect on your permissions that you have a contract on it goes into the 3 for me 1 for them phase😁😁

Cheers guys was just nice to get out again, I don't think you Welsh guys are missing much as I'm sure you know its generally pasture season now ( I try to steer clear of pasture if I can) and the only find since the hammered as been a complete big 17thc crotal bell from pasture.

Just been reading previous posts, it reminded me of a permission in |Cornwall near where I would stay every year, I found one cut half and three hammies, I always show the landowner what I find ! I could see what he was thinking lol.
He wanted these coins, I said that first he would have to trust me, because I would take them back to Brecon and then have them recorded through Welsh museum ( mark Lodwick ) and then as I was due back down in Cornwall in following July ( 3 months away) I would bring them back.

He did trust me, and I did bring them back, not in July but September, I kept him informed in case he thought I was running lol. I told Mark that the farmer wanted the coins back, he indicated that it was unfair, the farmer wouldn't have the coins if it had not been through the time I spent detecting over 3 days !

When I finally got back to see the farmer, I said to him that I would like to keep the cut half as I didn't have many at home, and I put the remainder in separate coin envelopes, and said for him to pick two and I would have the one left.

He was happy with that, and things were left on an agreeable stance.

The bottom line with all our permissions, technically the farmer owns everything on his land, but before you start detecting you should always discuss an agreement before starting !

Yeah, looks like some etch primer and car paint. I'm sure that'll do the trick.

Nice one carling. Great to see a find at last but I think you’ll have to wait a bit longer to see anything from my area. We’re still locked down.
