drive to Filey beach and ended up settling for a stretch of the River Hmber known as Hessle Foreshore as its only a 7 mile drive from mine.
I have had some decent trips to the foreshore in my time detecting and have found a hammered coin there and 8 rings 5 of which were gold. There is a rich history around the area and I have witnessed some lovely old hammered coins and artefacts dug from there.
The terrain is quite possibly the most difficult to metal detect on, its a mixture of chalk rocks and boulders, mud, more mud and a million nuts bolts and nails. There are waist deep pools of sinking mud and everything is slippery which when added to the fast flowing Humber makes for a detecting arena that is not for the faint hearted.
|Rocks, mud and sludge, metal detecting hell.|
