Hunt Country

Hunt Country: The country, which lies in Somerset, extends some 16 miles east to west and about 12 miles north to south. Until 1946 the country was much larger, but from then it was divided between the West Somerset (Western Farmers) and the West Somerset (Quantock Farmers). In 1954 the two Hunts became completely independent. This pack retained the name The West Somerset Hunt; the Quantock Farmers took the name West Somerset Vale. Adjoining Hunts: Minehead Harriers and Exmoor to the west; Dulverton (East) to the south west; Taunton Vale Harriers to the south east; West Somerset Vale to the east; to the north lies the sea.
