Treasure hunter shares his adventures after finding 17th century ring in Middlewich
A MIDDLEWICH man stumbled upon a 17th century ring while metal detecting on farmland.
Michael Farrington, of Chadwick Road, discovered the post-medieval golden ‘mourning’ ring while taking part in his hobby in one of the town’s ploughed fields in November 1, 2010.
The 47-year-old said: “Within 15 minutes I got a signal. I dug down about three or four inches and that’s when I found it.
“It didn’t look like a ring at first as it was covered with mud but there it was - this little gold ring.”
