Detectorists props sold for charity

Detectorists props sold for charity

As fans of the show will know, St Micheal’s Rooms in Framlingham was the HQ of Danebury metal Detecting Club in the “Detectorists”. It has now been demolished and props from the BBC show have been sold to help raise funds for a new community hall. Lots, including Sheila’s tea urn and Terry’s lecterns were sold in an online auction, run by Clarke & Simpson Auctions. Each item is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity, some signed by Mackenzie Crook.

James Durrant, director of Clarke & Simpson Auctions said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Castle Community Rooms project, which will be a fantastic addition to our town.” James told me “We are waiving all charges as it is for charity“.

Fundraising and project group member Adrian Morgan said: “Detectorists has been a very positive influence on Framlingham and has brought hundreds of fans to the town.We hope that our auctions will give those fans the opportunity to own a memento from the building and cement a long-lasting connection to the Framlingham community.

All funds raised will go towards the building of Framlingham’s new Castle Community Rooms.

Below are the results from a few selected lots:
