Land Available and Ground Conditions

In the heart of this delightful quaint rural Wiltshire village, I have for you 150 acres approx. of light soil top with a clay base. Undetected.

There will be a mixture of cultivated, stubble and pasture. The pasture fields have not been pasture for more than 3 years. The land is spread amongst two farms. The amount of cultivated land will obviously depend on how early the harvest is done. But the landowners assure me, weather permitting, they will try their best to get the land cultivated.

Brief History

Evidence of a small Roman settlement has been indicated on the edge of the village,

There is also evidence of many medieval buildings, now long gone.

Light Entertainment

A bar will be provided in the Reading Room on Friday and Saturday evening, serving beers, soft drinks and wine. On Saturday evening there will be (free) music from a band playing jazz and old time music. So please don’t forget to bring along your party frocks. This proved to be a very enjoyable evening last year.


A raffle will be run over the week end, being drawn at the Reading Room on Sunday. Any donations for prizes will be greatly appreciated. Please hand to the raffle stall on Friday and Saturday morning. There will be a number of detecting items as prizes.

All proceeds from the raffle will also be donated to Foxham Church and the Reading Room.

Terms and Conditions

The land owners Mr & Mrs R Pegler and Mr A Glass & Son, grants a licence to enter the fields specified during the following period of time, from 1200hrs Friday 27th September 2013 to 1600hrs Sunday 29th September 2013 for the sole purpose of metal detecting for items whether ancient or modern.

Notes on Finds

Finds over 300 years old and over £300 in value and items subject to the Treasure Act 1996 are to be divided 50/50 with the landowner.

To build and retain a good relationship with the land owner please show all finds. Share the unearthed fascinating history of your finds as nobody is going to take them away from you (obviously unless subject to Treasure Act).

This can only earn acceptance for our return trips and encourages the rest of us to try harder.

The local FLO, Richard Henry has been invited to record and identify finds.

The land owner respectfully requests the following:

1. All holes to be filled in.

2. Dogs are allowed, but must at all times be kept on a leash.

3. Entry to the specified fields indicated by the rally organiser via proper entry routes, not through hedgerows please.

4. No telephone calls to the landowner requesting return detecting.

5. No camp fires, only proper camping stoves to be used.

6. All rubbish to be put in bins/bags/skip provided.

General Note – In the event of a hoard or important find coming up the follow actions are to take place.

The finder is requested to stop digging and inform the rally organiser (Kim Clarke Mobile 07504697077) who will cordon off the area and along with the FLO, decide on the necessary course of action.

This course of action is to acknowledge the identity of the finder and to preserve the historical record.

It is your responsibility to abide by the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996 and Treasure Act Code of Practice (

Please note the following. Once you have made your donation to take part in this event you have accepted to be bound by the terms and conditions as laid down and described in this document.

Failing to comply with any of the terms and conditions for this event may result in early termination of your weekend.
