Welcome to Yorkie Bill's web site

I am a keen metal detectorist, I go Metal Detecting several times a week and have done so for the last 20 years.
I would really like to go Metal Detecting every day if I could.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my web site and do please come back to read the ongoing stories of just some of the things that happen to me on my travels, and also to see the pictures of some of the items I find, with a brief history relating to the period in which they were made - but please note, I am not a scholar, just an ordinary bloke that loves Metal Detecting - although I have learned a great deal more about history through my hobby than I ever did through school.

The Internet has been a great help to me and has opened up a whole new world. The youngsters of today are very lucky to have such a vast collection of knowledge at their finger tips.

Just digging! - I do have two legs you know, it's just that the signal was so strong to the right of me, I instinctively turned and started digging before my left leg had the chance to catch up! The other picture above, shows me hard at work surfing the net.

South Yorkshire Metal Detecting Club offers a free service to detect for your lost rings, keys or other items of sentimental value on your property. If you are interested, then telephone 0114 2333689 or email me by clicking on the "Contact Yorkiebill" picture above.
