They officially belong to the Crown if they are abandoned.

No, they belong to their owner.  Only if the owner cannot be found do they belong to the Crown.

SALVAGE
Where you recover vessels, their apparel, cargo or wreck on the sea, tidal waters or the shore, in circumstances where theywould otherwise be lost, you are entitled to a salvage reward from the owner of the goods.

WRECK
Any object of value, identifiable as belonging to someone, that is washed up on the shore or found in territorial waters is 'wreck' and must be declared to the Receiver of Wreck.   Failure to report wreck you have taken possession of is an offence.

BEACHCOMBING
You can keep anything that has never belonged to someone - fish, shellfish, seaweed, possibly pebbles.  Sand belongs to the owner of the foreshore and should not be  taken. 

Be sensible.  No one will care if you keep objects of no or little value, but anything of value must be declared.
