TRY your hand at metal detecting on Thursday (March 18th) with the History Hunters at Pilton in Barnstaple.

The free Metal Detecting Training Day is being organised by Barnstaple Museum and offers an introduction to this fascinating hobby under the guidance of the Taw and Torridge Metal Detector's Club and the Devon Portable Antiquities Liaison Officer.

It is part of the North Devon ALF project and is open to anyone aged 16 and over, but in particular those who would not normally get the chance to take part in such activities.

The first session will meet at Pilton Park at 10am. Participants can find out about different machines, archaeology and how to be a responsible detectorist. There will be plenty of metal detectors to use, or bring your own. A second session will run from 2-4pm.
