Scarborough beaches

Post by GeorgeMK » Sat May 04, 2019 4:29 pm

Having a short family break in Scarborough next month. Does the Council have any restrictions on detecting on either the South Sands or North Sands beaches? I see these are not Crown Estates so I assume they are Council controlled.

You can can detect on both, they are council run and there are no restrictions. Same for Whitby and Filey. Good luck ::g

Take care and be aware if operating on the south side of Filey in the area beyond Primrose Valley, as there can be soft mud beneath the sand (cliff erosion) at the foot of the cliffs which create a 'quick-sand effect. The sight of a wellington, the top almost hidden from view will not be a good omen!

Take care if going to Filey Brigg. The tide comes in very quickly. Good luck. :;@

Hi George

I lived in Scarborough for 45 years, only leaving there 5 years ago.

The one beach area I would head to is Scalby Mills, which is just past the Sealife Centre on the North Side.

There is a small bridge to cross, next to a derelict paddling pool and then turn left at the cliffs. You need to time it for low tide though to give you plenty of opportunty to detect. A healthy mixed bag of items always come off that beach. There are old WW2 gun emplacements just above and the beach is full of fossils as well. My mate Andrew Hayes found a large dinosaur footprint in one of the rocks there which made the press.

A pair of sturdy boots needed though as it is quite rocky in places.

If you venture towards Whitby, I would make a detour to Ravenscar which is one of my favourite beaches.

Enjoy your holiday,
Alan

Give it time, knowing Scarborough council I can see them trying to 'cash in', in some form or another, hope i'm wrong!

Sue and I had a short time on the north beach this morning with just the one detector, found a couple of ring pulls, a piece of melted aluminium, and a hot rock.

We were then approached by a teacher who asked if our metal detector could find a pound coin, as one of her school party had dropped a coin on the soft sand. We ran the CTX over the area where they thought the coin had been dropped and out popped a two pound coin! Teacher and schoolgirl happy.

Strolling back to our apartment we found a further six one pound coins, so I guess we were rewarded for our good deed.

Did you get as far as Scalby Mills George, or where you just in front of the beach chalets?
