Bringing the World of Metal Detecting Together


Event Camping and vehicles

Camping is in a private field and is very basic, there are no luxuries, if possible bring your own drinking water, bottled water will be on sale during the weekend (portable toilets are available but currently no showers. Cold water taps will be on site - NOT SUITABLE FOR DRINKING - PLEASE PURCHASE BOTTLED WATER).

The ground is not perfectly smooth so come prepared. 

Arrival for 2-day campers and those staying on site will be after 2.00pm Friday 13th September.

No arrivals in the camp field after 11.00pm at night - refer to our 'no noise' policy.

All campers need to be off site by 11:00am Monday 16th September.

A pasture field has been set aside for camping and caravans / campers etc, if you are camping please bring along a blow up mattress or camp-bed as the ground is stony and uneven in places.

Please arrive at the camping together if you want your camping pitches to be together. Marshals will not be leaving gaps when directing you and your vehicle to your camping pitch.

Due to limited space only 1 car is able to go with the camp pitch. This is likely to be the car with the tent in. All other cars can be parked in the 'Day Parking' car park, which is a short walk from the camping area.

Once you have parked your vehicle in the camping area, it must stay there until you are leaving the rally, unless you have special permission. We do not want vehicles driving around the camp site.

If you do wish to see the local area, please park your car in the 'Day car parking area' while at the rally.

If you own a 4x4 please bring it as the UK weather can be very unpredictable. 


There is a local village where you can buy basic supplies, the town of Burford is just down the road.


Here are some suggested hotels near to the rally site

Please note : There are no hotels within walking distance of the dig site, the best transport method is by vehicle. As this is an open air event and we can not guarantee the UK weather bring a 4 x 4 if possible, you will be driving and parking in a field.
