Medieval Silver Annulet Brooch found in Cheshire

A rare medieval silver annulet brooch, dating to the 14th  century, has been unearthed at a metal detecting rally organised by Crewe and Nantwich MDS, in aid of the Joshua Tree Charity, in Brassey Green near Tarporley, Cheshire.

The find came to light on Sunday 10th June 2012 by Tony Derbyshire who is a member of the South Lancs and Cheshire Metal Detecting Cub.

Tony, who has only been detecting for just over 12 months, has found items as far back as the Roman period, but this is his first item, that falls under the Treasure Act 1996.

The coroners inquest was opened on the 28th June and was adjourned, awaiting reports from the local Finds Liason Officer for the North West, but it is likely to be declared Treasure. It is unknown at this stage if any Museum is interested in acquiring the find.
