Hi Folks
Me and Ron ventured out for a few hours yesterday to show our appreciation to one of the landowners that allows us freedom to roam over about 2000 acres of mostly pasture in the south of England.  After delivering our gifts and enjoying some warm, home-made mince pies with a cup of percolated coffee over a friendly chat, we headed for the fields.  In some the grass was too long, some were really sodden and mucky and others were out of bounds due to the annual Christmas shoot.
We eventually decided to search a couple of fields on a bank within spitting distance of an Iron Age camp. Mist and drizzle made the walking and digging on the slope a little slippery, but we persevered for a few hours and unearthed a few finds.
Then, before we knew it, the light was fading and it was time to 'head for the hills' once more.  Here's looking forward to a good new year on the detecting calendar, good health (so that we can keep digging lots of holes and walking many miles) and plenty of decent finds to show on this great forum of ours.  Happy Digging !!!  Cheers and Best Wishes.  Tom and Ron.

Thanks for the replies guys.  As long as we keep finding things we'll keep posting photos and stories.  I think we owe our landowners a great deal because without them giving us permission to detect I can imagine folk queueing up on the beaches because they have nowhere else to go. 
We could be in the same area as you Paul.  We did see another detectorist last year on a farm on the other side of a valley, but have never seen anyone since.  Was it you Paul?  driving a white car ?
We're hoping to get out again over the holiday period and wish all you that manage a day out good luck !!
Happy New Year Digging!!  Tom.

Youíre very right Tom & Ron. Where would we detect without the goodwill of the landowners. I was very lucky with permissions and eventually got one that produced some nice finds.
Until this Christmas, after giving up the hobby, I made a point of looking after them that looked after me. Itís only fair.

Bottles of whiskey 🥃 all round, worth every penny, in general they are a very friendly hard working bunch, at least mine are.

Happy New Year.

Perhaps we'll bump into each other one day Paul!!  Until then, keep those excellent finds coming and show us all the photos on the forum.  As for looking after our landowners, we are off to another estate tomorrow and once again there is a gift for the owner.  It's great to show our appreciation and in doing so we know we will always be welcome.  Cheers and Happy Digging!!! Tom.
