DATES have been announced for an exciting new television show which will feature Dalton metal detectorists.

Unearthed UK detectorist Graeme Rushton - who took part in the pilot show - said it will be "a big hit with British audiences".

Although the keen detectorist from Dalton did not find actual gold, the Roman coins him and teammate Adrian Harris found from around 260 AD was enough to see him triumph over the other four teams competing in the initial pilot episode of 'Henry Cole's Great British Treasure Hunt', broadcast on ITV4 back in December 2020.

In the pilot show they visited Sudeley Castle, a Grade I listed castle located in the Cotswolds, near to the medieval market town of Winchcombe, Gloucestershire.

The brand new "Detecting" series of Henry Cole's Great British Treasure Hunt will be shown on ITV4 at 8pm on the following dates.

Episode 1: Monday 14th March

Episode 2: Tuesday 15th March

Episode 3: Wednesday 16th March

Episode 4: Thursday 17th March

Episode 5: Friday 18th March
