I mamaged to get out metal detecting today for around 5 hours in the sun. I headed to the usual spot of Hessle foreshore under the Humber Bridge. Unfortunately there was nothing old and nothing gold to be had there today however I did find a few quid in modern change that will have been thrown off the bridge.
There were plenty of the modern 2p coins that have the copper coating peeling away after only a few years ( not good for detectorists of the future).
After a couple of hours I decided to head upstream to north Ferriby foreshore which has a bit of romam history. The Romans used to cross the Humber at this point to get to south Ferriby and then on down to Lincoln. Anyway to cut a long story short, after a few hours and a good mile or so walking detecting I had found nothing but modern change.
Although it was not all bad, north Ferriby is a hotspot for fossils so I managed to find a couple of nice ones. One of the joys off metal detecting is the fact you don't have to find anything to enjoy yourself. Just the walking, fresh air and time to think in peace is often enough.
