Recently I happened to be cruising through a tiny village where the 12th century inn had just been refurbished and they had just built a big conservatory on the adjoining smallish grass area behind. Well I guess there would have been nowt of interest on there anyway! :cry: :pulling hair out:

Trouble with inns, if they have been in use in the last 100 years, are bottle caps and ring pulls. That small bit of land they built on is probably 1-2 foot deep in them.

But if they were digging out more than that though it would be darn annoying :D

Tell me about it.

A bit back I gained permission to detect a few acres belonging to a pub going back to the 1400's. Masses of history, Drovers Inn, Coaching Inn, footpath going across from the pub to a (largely) deserted mediaval village (only a farm and couple of houses remain) less than 1/2m away.

Was able to detect it several times before lockdown was eased and pubs reopended. Only site I have ever used a carrier bag for the scrap, never known a site like it :pulling hair out: :pulling hair out: :pulling hair out:

I managed to find a Victoria penny and a small plain buckle, that was the grand total from several visits :thumbdown: :thumbdown:
