Metal Detecting Digs

Welcome to the

The Metal Detectives Group arrange and organise Metal Detecting digs and rallies for metal detecting enthusiasts in various locations around the south of England.

Counties we have held metal detecting digs are Berkshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Dorset, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Gloucestershire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Sussex, Warwickshire, and Worcestershire.

Our digs are spread across the south as we feel it is important to explore our country's cultural heritage.

We try to visit sites that may hold a vast and interesting history and good finds potential.
