Recent reviews of Grimsweepers
My husband and I bought a GRIMSWEEPERS experience day session. Our knowledge of the hobby was limited to the TV sitcom Detectorists!! ….but I did have a lot of enthusiasm. When we arrived at the appointed place, Chris kitted us out with everything that we would need, metal detector, pinpointer, shovel, finds bag etc. Once we were ready he talked us through all the basics, all about the equipment, and equally importantly about respect for the landowners land. Then we were off on a one to one. Patiently and humorously he demonstrated how to get the best from the equipment then it was our turn. He watched, where necessary he corrected us, all the time he was enthusiastic, positive. and so approachable. Lunchtime came and went and in what seemed like no time, the day was over. I loved it. Our ‘finds’ weren’t earth shattering but I was hooked on the ‘beep beep beep’ sound of something in the ground.
I booked further sessions. I wanted to have a go on a beach, so GRIMSWEEPERS indulged me there …..I loved it. Then we went back to pasture where I found a silver hammered! Of course, I didn’t know what it was but Chris certainly did. He couldn’t have been more thrilled for me.
Since then GRIMSWEEPERS and I have maintained contact. I decided to get a machine of my own and Chris talked me through models available…….he even assembled it for me! He advised me on how to go about getting my own permissions, and also introduced me to other detectorists and local Detectorist Clubs.
For those that are looking for an introduction to metal detecting, I’d say GRIMSWEEPERS are exactly what you want and thoroughly recommend them.
I had a wonderful week with Chris. He is an amazing teacher and a superb detectorist. I really appreciated him helping me learn to identify my finds. He could not have been more helpful. I can’t wait to hop the pond again for another adventure. Highly recommend.
Had a really great day out with Grimsweepers. Found the experience really rewarding and interesting.
We had the best day with Grim Sweepers. Chris tailored the session for the entire family group and kept it interesting for both us adults and the kids.
He is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful out on the field and his passion for detecting really comes through in the delivery of the sessions.
