Managed to grab a few hours detecting today..Despite the ground being nice and damp, nothing much of note came up except a flat spindle whorl/ net weight, and the tiny object below…

I believe it’s a strap end, and it seems that it was once silver gilded as traces remain, mostly in the reverse…

I am hoping it’s medieval, but would be grateful if anybody could confirm this…

Thanks as always Allectus....if it's that late I am not sure if it's worth recording on the PAS?

The dozen or so buttons, plus other assorted bits hints there has been plenty going on there...Actually, I also found a large fragment of a nicely decorated Georgian buckle, and a couple of pistol balls, just nothing of any age, although I am sure such stuff is lurking there!

It looks to be a 17th C belt mount so all adds to the big picture!
