Hi, I’m Gavin, a budding metal detecting enthusiast (a.k.a. detectorist) based in the UK.

I’ve been involved with metal detecting for many years. A combination of my love for the outdoors and history led me to the activity.

I started my detectorist journey back in early 2012 with a Garrett EuroAce 350.

I loved this machine, it was simple to use and helped me find a bunch of ‘treasures’.

The thrill of the hunt got me hooked and I wanted to find bigger and better things. This is where it all started.

Fast forward 10 years and I have had multiple different machines, learned where I can and can’t detect, what I should wear, the best techniques and so many other things.

Over the years, I had been asked so many questions about metal detecting and detectors that I decided to start this site.
