One very welcome but unexpected consequence of setting up our web site was a contact from two gentlemen who are metal detectorists. They got in touch and asked us if they could please come and walk our fields. The pair of them have become a regular feature on the farm and they move slowly scrupulously along the rows of trees, listening carefully and carefully excavating the soil when they hear an encouraging signal. They have already found a number of very encouraging finds, from across a wide span of years, which are currently being researched. As we learn more, we will share the information (and photos) with you.
