The National Council for Metal Detecting

The NCMD is a representative body of elected volunteers formed in 1981 to provide a means whereby responsible metal detector users would have a democratic forum to discuss problems affecting the hobby and to provide an authoritative voice to counter ill -informed and frequently misleading criticism of the hobby. It does not represent the trade or archaeological interests.

The NCMD has gained Government recognition as an organisation which represents metal detector users countrywide. It has played a major role in representing the views of those metal detector users to Government Departments regarding legislation affecting the hobby.

The National Council for Metal Detecting has a written Constitution which is available to all members. It is a member of the Sport + Recreation Alliance (formerly the Central Council for Physical Recreation).

The NCMD have been great of late with getting the ban on metal detecting on the beach at cleethorpes lifted albeit temporarily.

Portable Antiquities Scheme

The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a voluntary scheme to record archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales. Every year many thousands of objects are discovered, many of these by metal-detector users, but also by people whilst out walking, gardening or going about their daily work. Such discoveries offer an important source for understanding our past.

Their website provides background information on the Portable Antiquities Scheme, news articles, events listings and access to our database of objects and images of finds.

The crown estate foreshore permit for metal detecting on beaches

Please note, the Crown Estate no longer provides online permits to anyone wishing to go metal detecting on Crown Estate foreshore
You are allowed to metal detect on Crown Estate foreshore, but must read our terms and conditions here before doing so.

The Crown Estate generally seeks to encourage access over, and responsible use of, the foreshore and as a result Crown Estate consent for non-commercial metal detecting on the foreshore will not incur a charge.

Seabed Metal Detecting
At present The Crown Estate does not grant permits for the sea bed as the Treasure Act does not apply below the foreshore.
Finds above the low water mark are generally the property of the landowner, unless classified as Treasure. Wreck on the seabed may still legally belong to a third party, therefore we recommend that any finds, particularly whilst you are diving or snorkelling, are not removed and are reported to English Heritage and the Receiver of Wreck.
