Newton racecourse

Postby callaway » June 26th, 2009, 4:17 pm

Hello to everyone, I am new to this site so I hope am doing this right. I have recently purchased a metal detector and would like to detect on the old racecourse site. I have asked a gentleman called Lionell at the farm nearby but he refused. Does anybody know how to get on this site?

If you have asked permission of the landowner or farmer and he has refused , then you will just have to accept defeat I'm afraid. I have wanted to detect on that land for quite a while but to no avail. Going on land ( and that land definitely isn't common land) without permission is viewed extremely poorly by other detectorists who obey the rules as it ruins their chances to obtain permission on other fields as all farmers do talk to each other.
Sorry for the sermon, but it is something I feel very strongly about.

Russ is correct, so if you want to detect on the pipeline She, i would ring the archs and get on with them.

I agree with you all. I have never detected anywhere without permission, unless it looked like an open shop....such as a beach.

Hi She,
But believe it or not, you are supposed to obtain permission to detect on the beach but most councils don't bother enforcing it. However I have known detectorists being asked to leave beaches before now !
The old adage ALWAYS applies: All land belongs to somebody.
