Anglian Detecting Group (ECS) is a metal detecting club situated on the East Anglian/Essex borders.
Our venue is at the Brantham Social Club in Brantham on the second Monday of the month at about 7.00pm
At our meetings we hold find of the month competitions in both coin and artefact sectionsOn occasions we have "Days Out" details published here.
We have "Find of the month" competitions in both coin and artefact sections with points going forward to an annual award.
Due to overwhelming demand and recent influx of new members
we have reached full capacity for the venue we currently use for our
meetings. We are therefore starting a
waiting list on a first come first served basis for those who wish to join the
club. Depending on additional demand we may seek an alternative larger venue in
the future. We will honour the requests from those of you who requested
membership at the last meeting.
If you attend our events please have your finds recorded.I saw in the field two broken roman fibula's which never came into our finds tray and also heard of a lovely roman duck brooch that again, never appeared to be photographed.
