Hunt History The Kimblewick Hunt is the new name of Vale of Aylesbury with Garth and South Berks Hunt - the Hunt was renamed in August 2010. The Vale of Aylesbury with Garth and South Berks was formed in 2002 by the amalgamation of the Vale of Aylesbury with the Garth and South Berks. The Vale of Aylesbury was formed in May 1970 from an amalgamation of the Hertfordshire, Old Berkeley and South Oxfordshire hunts. The Garth and South Berks amalgamated in 1962 because of increases in built-up areas and new roads principally around Bracknell where the Garth hounds were kennelled. The Garth dates from about 1770, and when Sir John Cope became Master in 1817, he hunted a much larger country than the present overbuilt one of the now combined hunts. In 1843 Sir John handed over the western side to George Mortimer Thoyts, together with 20 couple of hounds. This was the start of the South Berks. The Garth took its name from T.C. Garth, master from 1852 to 1902.
