Crown Estate foreshore restrictions
Some portions of the Crown Estates foreshore are leased or let to third parties. These third parties can apply their own restrictions and terms and conditions for visitors to the foreshore, including the use of metal detectors. It is recommended, before accessing any Crown Estate areas outlined on their map (available on their website, see link below), that you check for any restrictions. Notice boards at the beach, and occasionally websites, may detail any relevant bye-laws and restrictions.
Some foreshore areas are also protected by other legislation. For example, a piece of land can be designated an area a Site of Special Scientific Interest, or SSSI. These designations protect an area or habitat that is of special interest due to the flora or fauna present, or the geology of the area. To protect these important areas metal detecting may not be allowed, or may be restricted. Information on access provisions for metal detecting these areas can be obtained from Natural England, the Countryside Council for Wales and Scottish Natural Heritage. To help to find an SSSI take a look at Magic Maps which provides a searchable, interactive map of Great Britain https://magic.defra.gov.uk/MagicMap.aspx
