 Next year it will be 800 years since King John of ‘Robin Hood’ fame lost all his Royal Treasures in the Lincoln Wash. It had been John’s favourite hobby collecting jewellery, gold, silver plate, relics and other valuables. Most ‘Treasure Hunters’ have concentrated their searches near Sutton Bridge and Tydd Gotte but earlier this year a LiDAR ground penetrating survey showed all the ancient trackways & Roman banks that traversed the Wash, making access fairly straight forward, but 15 miles to the North it indicated a very exposed area open to the North Sea, at Fosdyke Bridge. This is where we think King John’s Treasure was lost.
