Bournemouth Detecting Club was founded in 2011 and was created to bring together those in the surrounding area who all share the same interest in the hobby and history in general. We are not like other Clubs in that we don't have waiting lists, we want anyone who has an interest in metal detecting to be able to meet others and share stories, tips and finds. There are no joining or ongoing membership fees, we do however charge a fee of £10 per person when doing a club dig on private land; with all fees going to the land owner.
We will welcome anyone who wants to join, who wants to get to know more about the hobby, and who likes to meet new members. You can also join via Facebook, just search Bournemouth Metal Detecting Club at and answer a few basic questions. We are now also on Instagram, I know right!!........just search, 'Bournemouthmetaldetecting'. or on Twitter: @BmthClub. We look forward to welcoming you.
