Dales metal detector celebrates 'key' find
A METAL detector enthusiast has spoken of his joy at unearthing an unusually-shaped 700-year-old key in a field in the Yorkshire Dales.
The ‘incredibly rare’ find, discovered by John Brassey at Austwick, has been recorded by the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS), a voluntary group set up to catalogue archaeological objects found by members of the public.
