Dear Fellow Landowners,

Maybe, as lockdown eases, you’ll be getting more requests to allow detecting. If so, you might be told by a detectorist or an archaeologist that a “finds agreement” is needed. It’s not. Everything in the field is yours (or the nation’s) so if anything is removed without your permission it’s simply theft!

Archaeologists (including PAS) know that, yet they still recommend a finds agreement even though NO archaeologist would dream of contracting to share the unseen contents of their granny’s loft with a loft clearer.

No, if you must allow detecting. this simple notice on your gate will not only fully suffice but may give you additional protection from being swindled.
