WHAT ???. You can detect on public land but not private land. Where did that come from ? Just checked the date, definitely not April 1st.

Its not good news by the looks of it...

NCMD's statement from today...

"RESTRICTIONS ON DETECTING FROM 5th NOVEMBER FOR ENGLAND

We have carefully read the guidance and the complete legislation ( The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020) on the new national restrictions for England to ensure our advice to you is correct as we enter ‘Lockdown 2’ in England.

As a responsible organisation we had however also sought confirmation that detecting was still legal from the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) earlier this week. They emailed us this afternoon with their view on what is legal, and published metal detecting specific guidance this evening.

This guidance confirms our view that detecting is not prohibited during this lockdown. However we were very surprised that the DCMS has specifically excluded detecting on private land, whilst allowing detecting on public land (with permission) such as beaches, parks and other council owned land.

We do not agree with this view of the legislation.

We have challenged the DCMS about why they are excluding detecting on private land. We will update you when we know more.

Until then we advise you to read and follow the DCMS guidance.

Please stay calm and continue to stay safe."

Whoever wrote that does not have the first idea of what metal detecting is, or how it works. It does not make any logical sense whatsoever.

I for one will definitely still be going out metal detecting :g50:
Equinox 800 and a lot of luck!

They can`t because such businesses were legally allowed to function.
They aren`t this time around.

The only way to stop them is by not funding them.
Don`t go & don`t pay.

It is that simple. :g50:

You have nailed it - and some of the pay to digs are getting far to expensive for what they offer - repeat visits to sites that have been hammered. :g45:

A couple of the fields that we detect have "public" footpaths running across them. So it should be OK to detect on either side. ???
