Metal Detecting Benefits for Landowners is an attractive booklet written for metal detectorists, as a deluxe calling card to give to landowners. The back cover has a ‘please contact’ space where you can add your contact details, preferably neatly printed, on an adhesive label. In the never ending search for good land upon which to detect, a small gift to the landowner, which gives them a guide to what metal detecting is all about and how they may benefit from allowing individuals or groups of metal detectorists on their land, can often turn a no or maybe into a YES! You may metal detect on my land. There is a little known law of reciprocity which almost compels the receiver of a gift to give something back − metal detecting permission in our case. Before you use this booklet you should familiarise yourself with what is being offered within its pages so that you are prepared for any requests from landowners. Clubs and groups should be able to offer ALL services; independent detectorists will need to enlist the help of other detectorists to organise a rally. Or such a request could be passed on to a local club. The National Council for Metal Detecting will be able to provide club contact details. If you call for permission, have this booklet in your hand at the landowner’s door and hand it over before you leave. If you write for permission enclose this booklet, with a neatly written request. Or, when attending an appropriate public event, give a this booklet to owners of gardens, paddocks, smallholdings, woodland, farms and estates. Even if the desired result is not immediate, leave this attractive booklet with the landowner, who should be delighted to keep it to hand in case a valuable part falls off their expensive tractor or they fancy there could be a hoard on one of their fields. Contents include: A Brief History of Metal Finds, Treasure and Hoards, How We Can Help You, Day Rates for Detecting Rallies, What Could Be Found on Your Land? Responsible Metal Detecting Code of Practice, Sample Search Agreement. This modestly priced booklet will be your passport to new metal detecting land, exciting finds and perhaps riches beyond the dreams of avarice. Can you afford to be without one or two? Invest now!
