    Polite Request To Enter Your Land With a MD

    Hi all,
    this is my first post on this forum so please bare with me. Thank You.
    My name is Jan and I am a keen history enthusiast who loves to learn about UK's heritage and my goal is to add to this knowledge and to share it with others. I live in London and I would like to ask all of you guys owning any small or large piece of land not far from London for permission to access your land and use a metal detector which will enable me to find any local artefacts and relics that may be present thus enabling me to learn more about our local ancestors which I can share with others.
    When I locate a target my metal detector is very accurate and will ensure that the smallest possible plug of soil or turf is removed. Once I have recovered the artefact, I carefully replace any loose soil and turf. It would be hard for you to tell any disturbance had ever took place. The same consideration and care is taken on ploughed land.
    I am very respectful of the country code and care a lot for nature, and always abide by the metal detecting code of practice which is agreed by the National Farmers Union and the National Council for Metal Detecting which I am member of. For your peace of mind I am also covered by public liability insurance up to the amount of 10.000.000
    I would completely comply to any rules, restrictions, and boundaries you set and would always have the greatest respect for your land, property and animals. I would also always report to you before entering your land to make sure It wasn't inconvenient.
    If I was to find any artefacts of value (including those covered by the Treasure act 1996) the usual agreement between yourself as the landowner and myself would be an equal share of any monetary reward. Anything I found on your land would be reported to you. I would also be willing to offer you a few free services as a gesture of good will, one being the attempted recovery of any items on your land that you or a family member may have lost i.e. jewellery or tools etc secondly removing litter, nails and sharp objects on my way around.
    If you are willing to give me a chance then please let me know below and I will contact you. If you would like me to call you to discuss things further and answer any questions that you may have then please let me know.
    Thank you all in advance for your time on reading this post and your consideration.

    Not a single friendly farmer/landowner from Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Kent, Sussex, Essex, Hampshire, Middlesex, or Hertfordshire area on here? Is it about money? If so, drop me a price and if it's not ridiculous I'll be happy to accept it. Hope to hear from you guys soon and thanks in advance!
