Metal Detecting

After school, me and my brother liked to go to Manor Farm Park to do metal detecting, hunting for treasures. You would be surprised by the kind of things we found. Once the council park worker told us that we shouldn’t doing this in the park. Why not? If we didn’t do it, these things would be buried underground forever.

I may not have paid enough attention at school, but through metal detecting, I learnt to be patient, focused, thorough and systematic. I started working at local garage and now I have my own garage. I still enjoy going for metal detecting holidays with my brother. OK, we didn’t find the Staffordshire Hoard. But maybe that’s a good thing. I heard that the two men that shared the cash from the find fell out with each other.
