With a Crown Estate foreshore permit you can detect on any foreshore owned by the Crown Estate, provided those sites aren't also Scheduled Monuments (SM), MOD sites or Sites of Specific Scientific Interest (SSSI). For beaches not owned by the Crown Estate, you will need to find the owner and get their permission before detecting (again, you must also check the the beach is not an SM, MOD or SSSI). For SSSIs, you may still be allowed to metal detect, but you would need to get further permission from the authority who manage the land (such as Natural England).
