Our seventh dig, Leith Hill, Surrey

by | May 21, 2024 | Articles, Digs

Our last metal detecting dig at our Leith Hill permission was a memorable one. We all took a Friday off work and were blessed with glorious weather, although we did forget to bring sun lotion and ended up getting sunburned. Undeterred, we started the day with high hopes after finding a silver William III shilling in a nearby field. However, the day did not yield any major finds. We did come across a massive horseshoe, a few worn coins, and a musket ball, which were our most exciting discoveries. This is part of the thrill of metal detecting – you never know what you might uncover. Despite the lack of significant finds, we still had a great time and ended the day with a refreshing pint of Shere Drop at The Plough in Coldharbor. It was a fantastic day spent with friends, enjoying the great outdoors and our shared passion for metal detecting. We can’t wait for our next adventure!

As ever, if you know of any landowners who would be willing to let four bearded bleepers lose on their land to find buried treasures, let us know. We pay for permission to detect, you can find out more on our home page Surrey metal detectorists
