About Us & Our Rules

Welcome to our group.

We arrange group digs across the southwest every weekend of the year, we welcome everyone old or new.

At the moment the vast majority of our digs are held in Devon or Cornwall, We are hoping to expand steadily into Dorset in good time.

All you need to attend a group dig arranged by us is public liability insurance from either FID or NCMD. You’ll find a link to the NCMD at the bottom of this page.

We also donate alot of money to charity from our dig entrance fees throughout the year. Since July 2017 we have donated nearly £2000.

 

Welcome to the NCMD
