I am seriously thinking of investing in a metal detector. I could have hours of fun out there with my dog & who knows - I might hit the jackpot! 8)

Seems like a place with history and things being buried..... 8) For my money to the east and north west of Mold is stuff waiting to be found at 2 to 3 feet down in the fields, now where are my shoes. :lol: Dont know about shoes, its all I can do to walk to the kitchen to make some tea, oh well. :mrgreen:
