As detectorists we’re always looking for new tips and tricks to give us an edge in the field.
The more we know, the more stuff we find and that’s a great combination to have so here’s a few tips for your future hunts.
Look at road names such as Church Street, Railroad Ave., Schoolhouse Rd, Park St., Picnic Grove Rd. etc for leads. Often, streets are named for landmarks or other areas that can be of interest to detectorists. One field that I hunt is on School Street, and as the name alludes to, there was once a school that sat in that field. When viewing maps while looking for new detecting spots, pay attention to street names because they can lead you to some great hunting spots!
