Metal detecting is permitted on three of our council owned sites.
East Town Park, Haverhill, CB9 7UW
At East Town Park metal detecting is not allowed on the river banks because it is not safe to do so.
Hardwick Heath, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 2QZ
Nowton Park, Bury St Edmunds, IP29 5LU
You can apply online for a 12 month metal detecting permit covering all three sites costing £29.40. When ordering your metal detecting permit please allow 10 working days for processing and despatch. 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.
