Metal detecting

From 5 November 2020, metal detecting has been suspended due to national COVID-19 restrictions.

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. During the current national COVID-19 restrictions permits will be issued with a start date of 3 December 2020 onwards due to metal detecting being suspended. Refer to the site maps above that show the areas that can be used for metal detecting. Make sure that you read our metal detecting terms and conditions.
