Seeking Permission: ten pounds per head, per day

The Northern Relic Hunters are a metal detecting club based in the north east of England. Its members boast they all have 'full public liability insurance' and they are looking for land to detect on. They pay ten pounds per head, per day. Most metal detectorists expect to use their "permissions" (and get to take away the haul) absolutely free. But even then it's a bargain if they find a buckle which according to the Searcher's finds valuation page is alone worth forty quid. Find two and a detectorist is laughing all the way to the bank. There is no mention here of signing a search and take agreement or finds ownership transfer protocols documents after detecting. The forum is closed to outsiders (and any detectorist they do not see eye-to-eye with) and the links pages unedifying. The webpage has no Code of Ethics displayed.
