Metal detecting is a fantastic hobby. It does give you a buzz when you find something good.

I use the XP Deus on the Deep program and Sid Perry’s program. I tweak both to suit me and the ground conditions, normally have my killer hertz quite low 4 to 7 and sensitivity around the 95 .

I found the gold ring in Wetherby north Yorkshire when out with Northumbrian Search Society ( NSS ) and I have been back to show the farmer and told him that I am talking it to Finds Liaison Officer, I contacted Flo in Durham to discuss and report the find.

I have been metal detecting for a few years and I have found some interesting finds.

I am out metal detecting most weekends I love the hobby and you meet loads of people that love the hobby as well.
