    Default a quiet stroll down by the river

    Hi to you all.New member here again!Id just like to mention that i found this spent round on a beach,near the embarkation beach of Trebah,near Falmouth.Its an exceptionally interesting area with remains of old guard buildings,reinforced concrete roads cutting through fields.
    I must add that i wasnt looking for anything i just glanced down,and there it was!
    Has anyone considered looking in these areas?

    When i was growing up we used to play in the old bunkers that looked over Par harbour,it was great maze of bunkers and tunnels etc..came across the odd spent round but nothing much. I heard a few years back that somebody stumbled upon a huge cache of weapons/ammo etc.. i think they had to get bomb disposal to come in and remove it all. I can just imagine what would of happened if we found it as kids! lol

    Hi,
    Nice find, have you found any other items up there, I would be interesting to go and have a look around with the detector,
    I usually go to the airfields and look, i have found a few bits there.
    But am looking for other places to go, you never know what will come up. and falmouth isnt far is it,
    Dave.
