History of the Hunt

Start Year: 1803
End Year: N/A
History: The Hunt is known to have existed in 1803. It started as a trencher-fed pack of harriers, hunting both hare and fox, and changed to foxhounds in the late 1800s. e Haydon Hunt has its bicentenary in 2009. Since 1971, The Haydon Fox Hounds have been kennelled at Settlingstones, near Newbrough, on the site of a former Witherite mine. The Haydon Hunt country straddles the river South Tyne during much of its length, running from Fourstones, on the western outskirts of Hexham, westwards to the county boundary with Cumbria. Much of the Saturday Country is in this fertile South Tyne Valley. North of this, rising to well over 1000’, lies spectacular Hadrian’s Wall whilst to the south is Hexham Shire, which runs runs through to Cumbria and the foothills of the Pennines. At its most southern extremity, it borders Ullswater Hunt country, although a small strip between the two is currently lent to The North Pennine Hunt.

Hunt Country

Hunt Country: The country, which extends 25 miles east to west by 15 miles north to south, lies in the south west corner of Northumberland. Best centres: Newbrough, Haydon Bridge and Bardon Mill. Adjoining Hunts: to the west the Bewcastle; to the north west the North Tyne, to the north east the Tynedale; to the east the Braes of Derwent; to the south the North Pennine. It also adjoins The Bewcastle and North Tyne Hunts to the west and north and The Tynedale and Braes of Derwent Hunts to the east and south. It’s a large and, in many parts, wild and still remarkably unspoiled, stone-wall country, requiring versatile hounds with stamina and a sure-footed horse, at home on heather or grass.
