About This Hunt

Hunt Country The country covers some 19 miles north to south and 22 miles east to west in the counties of Hertfordshire, Essex and Cambridgeshire. A bank and ditch and plough country, it is poor scenting, but the wetter it is, the better the scent lies. A well-bred horse is required, clever at banks and blind ditches and able to gallop through the deep. Best centres: Bishop's Stortford, from which also meets of the Essex are accessible., Saffron Walden to the north and Buntingford near the centre of the country. Adjoining Hunts; to the north the Thurlow, to the east and south east the Essex and to the north and south the Cambridgeshire with Enfield Chace.

Hunt History The Hunt dates back to 1725 when hounds were kept at Cheshunt and the country was also that of the Hertforshire. The country, as now constituted, has existed since 1799. In 1970 the Puckeridge amalgamated with the Newmarket and Thurlow to form the Puckeridge & Thurlow; but in 1992 this union was dissolved and the re-established Puckeridge reverted to its old boundaries. The Mastership has been in the Barclay family continuously for over a hundred seasons.

Secretary: Mrs. E.G. Harford
