Hi Guys

I've been metal detecting for some time now but have had no joy in finding permissions for it on private/Farmers Land. I'm wondering if anyone in the south wales area would consider allowing me a small section of their land to detect on? I have public liability insurance and am a member of a detecting club so I'm aware of the rules etc. Additionally, if anyone could further advice me on the best ways of gaining permissions without being shot would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Is there anything that you could offer the farmer/ landowner in exchange for the holy grail of a permission.
I for one had the same mindset as yourself and thought I have got to be the first to have though of the idea of asking on the forum how wrong was I and in fairness was shot down in flames.
I was led in the direction of a farmer who needed a welder/ fabricator as his one had recently retired and it has worked out fantastically for me.
So if you have anything that would help I am sure one way or another someone on here will guide you in there direction good luck with your quest

The 31 March deadline for responses to RABI’s Big Farming Survey is fast approaching and everyone linked to farming across England and Wales is being encouraged to take part.

“The support that we’ve received since the launch of The Big Farming Survey in January has been incredible. We’d like to thank everyone who has already completed the questionnaire or promoted the research project more widely,” says RABI’s Chief Executive, Alicia Chivers.

“However, the more comprehensive the data collected, the better the reflection on the daily realities of people from all sectors of agriculture and across all regions,” she adds. “We therefore want to hear from farmers, farm workers, contractors, spouses, adult-aged children and...
