Cheryl and Adrian Dawes at East of England Rallies pride ourselves on organising weekend events specifically aimed at the serious detectorist.
The detecting is the main focus and to that end we don't have a beer tent , live music and the proverbial in a brewery.
That's not to say that we don't enjoy ourselves.
We have been organising digs in Norfolk since 1991 and strive to offer the best detecting land available on the many estates that we use.
We aim to have several weekend digs throughout the year that run from Friday lunctime through till Sunday afternoon so if you fancy joining our happy friendly group then please get in touch.
For our March Weekend Dig we have at our disposal over 150 acres of prime detecting land at MERTON, Norfolk.
A selection of fields some of which will be in stubble some dirt and even some with growing crop as long as its not too tall, all easy to detect with camping and parking on one of the stubble fields.
Four of the fields have not been searched before and the others have been re-cropped since they produced a variety of Roman and Saxon finds, with plenty more to give.
Usual facilities on site catering and toilets etc.
Site will be open from 2pm on the Friday for those of you camping and dig finishes at 4pm Sunday with no camping over on Monday night.
Tickets £70 per person detecting, children under 14 no charge.
No Day Tickets Available.
A Big thank you to all those that attended and helped to make a thoroughly enjoyable and great weekend.
We had many and varied finds from all periods and the site certainly lived up to all expectations.
