History of the Hunt

Start Year: 0
End Year: N/A
History: The Four Shires was founded at the Millennium by Maggie Pearlstine and Edward Hammond, both former masters of The Farmers� Bloodhounds in the Cotswolds. They were supported by the President, the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire and the Chairman, Sir Andrew Buchanan, the Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire. The pack developed from the original Kyre Bloodhounds, which merged into the Four Shires, drafts from other hunts and now home-grown puppies. Kennels are in Pikehall in the Peak Park. Hounds hunt the clean boot in this wonderful hunting country. The Hunt is a member of the Masters of Draghounds and Bloodhounds Association. There is a second field master for those who prefer little or no jumping. The Hunt welcomes visitors and prides itself on being friendly.

Hunt Country

Hunt Country: The country comprises the four shires in and surrounding the Peak District National Park: it borders the Cheshire Farmers� in the west, the Cranwell Bloodhounds in the east, and the Farmers� Bloodhounds in the south, hunting with landowners� kind permission. The type of country is variable: the centre of the country is grass with natural hedges and fences; on the western boundary it is predominantly undulating and trappy with hunt jumps and natural fences; it stretches from the hilly stone walls and hunt jumps in the Peak Park to the arable land on the eastern boundaries with natural hedges and hunt jumps.
