Metal detecting (MD) is a fantastic pastime with more and more people discovering their special and happy ongoing journey every day. Here you will find detecting help, reference information and tips to make your detecting experience more enjoyable and happy.

I have been metal detecting for the past 30 years now and have learnt a great deal along the way. From beginners to the more seasoned detectorist there will always be questions you may need answering and I hope that on this site you find what you are looking for. Please let me know if something is missing or would be useful to others. Happy detecting!                    Phil Williams BA PhD.
