About Our club digs...

Getting out and digging with like-minded people, is what it's all about! We work hard to obtain permissions for our club members to dig on land in the historically-rich north-east region, and our digs have produced some great finds.


We aim to provide a fun and friendly atmosphere, and welcome everyone from the seasoned detectorist to the complete newbie. Children are also welcome to attend our digs, providing that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

Our team of marshals are on hand to offer help and advice, and ensure that everyone follows the club rules, particularly with regards to following the NCMD code of conduct. We also urge all members to familiarise themselves with the regulations for reporting historic artifacts, and we can help you report items for recording with the Portable Antiquities Scheme.

Getting to the digs...


We post maps and postcodes of dig locations on our Facebook Event page. Parking is always available on site, either on hard-standing or grass.


If you don't have access to your own car - then we suggest posting a message on our Facebook page to find others in your area that can share lifts. Everyone is very friendly, and with such a large community of members, it is easy to find someone local to attend digs with.

If you need any further information about our club digs, and you can't find the answers on our Facebook pages, the please feel free to contact us.

New land...

If you are a landowner, and you would like our club to search on your land, please do get in touch!


We offer a generous reward for allowing us to hold digs on your land, and if a significant find or treasure is uncovered then the value is of course split with the land-owner!
