Hi members.

I've recently started using my coin master pro and garret pinpointer and have found some nice finds. Lots of old coinage, pennies, halfpennies, sixpence' and two silver coins namely a catholic pendant, a 1928 sixpence and a 1944 shilling. It's got me hooked and can't wait to get back out there !!

How do I go about finding out how owns certain areas of land and getting permissions?

Thanks

Hi s12aun,

Glad you're hooked too! I've been detecting for the last 6 months and I definitely have the bug as well.  Grin

I've managed to get 3 good permissions by writing to farmers with a letter introducing myself including a self-addressed stamped envelope and a flyer I had printed detailing more about me. Copy here  - https://www.dropbox.com/s/q899gmsqfzo1xmz/Jeff%20Metal%20Detecting%20Leaflet.pdf?dl=0 . I'm a designer by trade so I know this isn't something most could do, but I wanted to give the landowner a taste of who I am as at the end of the day they have to trust you and let you on their land. I didn't fancy cold calling farmers but I'm sure it works but it's a numbers game. The more you ask, the more likely you are to get a permission.

As to finding out who owns land, I just look at farms on google maps to contact.

Good luck  Smiley

The best way is to go to farms and ask if you can go on their land but if you want to get details on a specific piece of land you can get the info from the land registry but I believe you have to pay for it. Good luck and good hunting and welcome to probably best forum in the world

Wagis is correct, go to www.gov.uk then Land Registry.
They have a new online service where you can get:-
Title summery (owner, price paid, mortgage etc) for 3
Title register, document of ownership (if it has been registered) 3
Title plan (boundaries) 3.
You will probably need the summery for the owner and the plan for the map. Therefore 6 could be well spent.

Just to add a little something to all those who have given their sound advice regarding "obtaining permission's".
I've always found that once you manage to get your first permission,keep your farmer/landowner fully aware of any finds you may have detected,where ,and on what field(without being a pain)....in other words,get to know him,.....then after a while ask him if he wouldn't mind giving him as a referee regarding the possibility of Detecting on his neighbours farm land...its worth a try,and ..well it's worked for me.
Good hunting, and good luck on getting your permission's.......👍
