M. Longfield Trophy

We are a small group from the Worcestershire / Warwickshire borders that are very keen to go out metal detecting at every available opportunity.

Club members organise frequent rallies where we hold a competition to see who can find the best coin and best artefact for the day.

Alongside these events we also run the MIKE LONGFIELD TROPHY competition to find the overall "Detectorist Of The Year". ( See Useful Links)

We are fortunate to have great sponsorship by FreeRunJuice, an online wine seller and our local metal detecting shop - Mike Longfield Detectors of 83 Station Road, Balsall Common, Coventry. CV7 7FN.  For any information about equipment or books or any other aspect of detecting please contact them.

At the monthly club meeting we always have a display cabinet showing our best finds of the previous month, and it would be unusual not to have Roman coins, Medieval hammered coins, buckles, pipe tampers, thimbles, rings, military badges etc. on display every month.

We are very fortunate to have Angie Bolton ( the Local Finds Liaison Officer from the Portable Antiquities Scheme ) come along to every second club meet.  As a club we wish to encourage the close links that this valuable scheme has bought about between responsible metal detectorists and archaeologists. All finds that may be over 300 years old should be voluntarily handed over to the P.A.S. , with the find spot details, for recording and measuring before being returned.

Each month we send club news and pictures of our best finds for publication in the "club activities" section of "The Searcher" magazine.

Guests are invited along to all our rallies and club meets as long as they abide by the few sensible rules we have.

Please feel free to use the links and see some of our recent finds from the counties that make up the centre of the UK.
