Steve, superb news! Really pleased for you :Star:

Val you make me laugh. As this rate you’ll do better without a detector! Sure you are loving the pup despite the blood letting!

On the detecting front my last three trips have been very poor as I’m just scrapping on rubbish land in desperation as everything else is seeded, too long or full of bad tempered cows! This evening I got desperate to go anywhere so headed towards my favourite field expecting a rubbish session in the too long grass. Was jumping for joy to see the land owner has stripped the top 3 foot of another big section of the field in his new track building project :Party: :Party: :Party: I’ll do a report on the finds tomorrow :D 8-) I even had to wash the mud off all my gear when I got home which is a novelty recently!

Finds are not always the ones you can put in your pocket. As mentioned in an earlier reply, we must be the rarer breed who are always observing our surroundings and don’t miss much. Though I’ve walked past this one a few hundred times..
I found something intriguing on one of my outings with my woofers. I took a couple of pics, one of which is below. I was going to clip it down but thought what shame to loose the trees, all about 200 years old. But when I looked at it again I thought OOOH ! Maybe I should get rid of some of it. Then I thought No I know at least one member who will really enjoy this one. All I’ll say to him is
BANANAS !
It will be interesting to see if anyone can spot the find. I’ll post the second pic later which shows the ‘find’.

Oh yes Easylife could have it there! A way marker? Or alternatively, is it a grave stone?

Good spot Val!

No & no. But well-spotted.

Must admit a grave stone was my first thought.

It looks very small so maybe a datum or trig point? Could even be a boundary marker? :Thinking:

Well, look as i might but i cant see any "finds"
But, my differently wired brain has seen some oddities with the trees....
The sprawling roots to the left of the photo looks like an octopuss to me, but the main feature is the very 'erect' tree in the centre :shock:
As i said i have a knack of seeing things that arent really there lol

Take my old shed door for instance
I took the dilapidated shed down a few weeks ago as it was way past its sell by date and was home to 3 huge Rats
It all went to the tip for recycling, but i couldnt get rid of the door
As it was stood up waiting for its fate, i noticed "faces" in the knots and grain of the wood
So i saved the door and it now lives in my garden lol
When i told the wife i have some new friends, and promptly took her hand and dragged her out to show her, she stared in disbelief, let go of my hand and told me to seek some help.... :lol:
Here are a couple of photos of my new friends (Sorry to hijack whoevers thread this is, hopefully a sensible mod will be along to sort me out :lol: )

Just love the little bird in the 2nd pic Bruce. The other one might look better upside down. Tried screwing my head around but it just wouldn’t go :cry:

There is a find but not one I could carry and it tells part of the story of the area though I think it’s in a strange position.
Look more closely :shock:

Well, yes & no. You did actually spot the tree but didn’t get the I’d right on the ‘stone’.

It speaks of one of the uses this area has Experienced through its history. Sadly I can remember these ‘stones’. Says a lot about my age !

Here’s what it really was.

Should really have mentioned that the area in question was commandeered by the Gov. for the RAF during WW11.
In and around where the GPO marker is there were barracks etc for personnel stationed there.
Could have been interesting to detect but, of course, not allowed as it is still a military sight and used for mock manoeuvres. The use of live ammo could be a danger :o
The trees were already there and, thankfully, not cut down. They were either side of the lanes that ran from a village & a hamlet and met at that point. The house on the other side of the main road is called Meeting House.
Like I’ve said before, amazing what we learn through the hobby of detecting. :thumbsup:

And yes, my apologies the the OP for hi-jacking the post but just proves we might have been quiet but never stop looking and thinking !
