Are you interested in the history of your land?

Are there objects of historical and monetary value hiding in your land? Now you can find out for free. On your behalf, the Mercian Heritage Group will be pleased to investigate and carry out a search at no cost to yourself.

Here at the Mercian Heritage Group we welcome new land to search and are happy to share any items of value on a 50/50 basis.

In return for your kind permission, we would offer to:
  • Report all worthwhile finds and findings to you
  • Share any finds or their value with you on the customary 50/50 basis
  • Work tidily without leaving a mess, removing all junk uncovered
  • Respect your property and take care to avoid causing damage, loss or hindrance (we have NFU approved Civil Liability Insurance up to 10 million per member)
  • To never discuss any of our finds or reveal any locations with anyone without your prior consent - Full discretion is assured
  • Abide by any conditions that you may wish to impose
  • FREE searches for lost metallic items e.g. jewellery, tools and equipment, pipes, drain covers etc

To protect both you as the landowner and the club searchers we recommend using a simple written agreement, signed by both parties which can be terminated at any time.

The Mercian Heritage Group is a member of National Council for Metal Detecting and carries 10 million civil liability insurance per member, each of whom abide by club rules including NCMD Code of Conduct and Code of Practice for Responsible Metal Detecting in England and Wales.
