Hi,
I’m Sensorman. I thought I’d introduce myself being new to this forum. I’ve been detecting for around 3 years now. Mostly in mine and friends gardens and at the beach when on holiday. Just recently I have been successful in joining a local club and have been out on a couple of digs. I haven’t found anything of any great age yet but I am enthusiastic and hopeful. I really enjoy visiting the forum and have already learned a great deal. You’re all doing a great job and I look forward to regularly reading all the interesting posts.

Hello & welcome, Sensorman.
Good to see you have joined a club, which will give you more sites apart from gardens and beaches.
Which machine do you use ?
Look forward to seeing what you find in the future.
Cheers, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Excellent news with joining the club, and fingers crossed you come across a permission you can call your own too
Thanks for your kind words too, but a forum is only as good as its members, and we are blessed with a good bunch of folk here with knowledge spanning all sorts of areas :thumbsup:

Nice to have another new member. Sounds like the limited land opportunities haven’t put you off so new land will soon have you improving your finds. If nothing else making new friends is always fun too.

Good luck and hope to see some of your finds soon :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Hi Dave,
Nice to meet you and thanks for your warm welcome.
Until very recently I used a Garrett Ace 250 but after doing much research and reading, I am now the proud owner of an Equinox 800.

Hi Dave77,
Thanks to you too.
I live in deepest Gloucestershire. So hopefully I should be able to turn up some history.

Thanks. Yes. I’m working on a couple of possibilities for local permissions. So fingers crossed.

For permissions you could try this,
A farmer on one of my permissions had been having health problems with his cows. I said I would scan the fields where this was happening.
I found more lead than usual, the farmer was happy and I got to detect on all his land. Now when I ask for a new permission I tell this story and so far I have got 2 more permissions.
Its worth a go.
Thanks,
Dave
