It was during the heatwave of 1976 that club founder Peter Welch first took up metal detecting.
Pete was working as a stable lad & exercise jockey at his parent's horse racing yard near Ascot. As the last of the horses had been worked, fed & watered, Pete was out on the farm with his C-Scope BFO detector. Searching around the ‘Big white house’ on the farm produced endless pre-decimal coins and occasional jewelry items. The house (now the posh De Vere hotel, Sunningdale Park!) was once owned by Lord Derby and proved to be a great hunting ground as it was derelict then.
Several years later, Pete joined the Thames Valley Search Society in Langley but soon realized that many detectorists when trying to find their own farmland to search often experienced difficulty obtaining permission. As Pete already had permission on the turf farms in Romney Marsh, he took his club there which ultimately gave him the idea of starting up the renowned Weekend Wanderers Detecting Club.
