Difficult time of the year even for individuals to go detecting .Never mind a group . either cropped,long grass or full of beast . Sheep fields are ok but we dont detect in fields with beast in .As can be unpredictable when young or with calfs . Hate to see young beast running around tails up accident waiting to happen . And the farmers aren't happy seeing them flying around . Up here if it stays dry they will be getting first crop but the land is that wet and will mark badly and difficult to travel catch 22 . Would think around 3/4 weeks behind . But the crops are looking well what we need is a hot dry spell .

Spot on David.
I’m going hill walking this weekend coming as I’m sick of grass and that is getting too long now anyway.
Just like you, I’m hoping for some sunshine, my diary from last year says the first barley came off on July 10th on one of my permissions near Ripon.

Not sure Sue how will I find out about open digs. I got an 1874 hapenny yesterday, very faded but I was pleased. Easily pleased.
Hi I am unsure of your location but there are a few Facebook groups give me a rough idea where you are and I will try and find you some links well done on the half penny I've had two this morning

Hi, if your looking for a detecting group based around your area you could always try the Gateshead detecting society. we are a very friendly group which welcomes new members. We usually detect every Sunday, mostly in Northumberland but sometimes in County Durham, Cleveland and North Yorkshire. The club has a meeting every 2 weeks on a Monday night at Gateshead bowling club near the centre of Gateshead.
I have been a member for 8-9 years now and made many great friends in the club, and have visited lots of great detecting locations often with some decent finds turning up. Once or twice a year we also have organised rallies down to Lincolnshire which are usually very productive and enjoyable for all involved.
If you are interested in joining the club or simply just want more information, you can contact our chairman Terry Peach through the email <TerryPeach@blueyonder.co.uk>

Please let us know how you get on it might help others.
