Metal detecting

Metal detecting is permitted on three of our council owned sites.

East Town Park, Haverhill

Hardwick Heath, Bury St Edmunds

Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds

You can apply online for a 12 month metal detecting permit covering all three sites costing £28. Refer to the site maps above that show the areas that can be used for metal detecting. At East Town Park metal detecting is not allowed on the river banks as it is not safe to do so. Make sure that you read our metal detecting terms and conditions.
