About This Hunt

Hunt Country The country lies in Berwickshire and covers almost 350 square miles, measuring some 16 miles east to west between the Lauderdale Hunt and the eastern coast of the Scottish borders, and 20 miles between Coldstream in the south and the Lammermuir hills in the north. The country is very varied, ranging from good heather hill in the Lammermuirs, through open stock farming country with large fields to a predominantly arable area in the "Merse" of Berwickshire. Best centres: Coldstream, Duns and Greenlaw.

Hunt History The date of the establishment of the Berwickshire Hunt is not known, but it existed in 1740 when Mr Lumsdaine, of Blanerne, was Master. The country has undergone many changes, and at various times the portion now hunted by the College Valley/North Northumberland has been incorporated with it, and in Lord Wemyss's Mastership a still greater extent of the country was hunted, including that now hunted by the Percy. During these periods the Hunt has been known as Northumberland and Berwickshire. On the death of Sir James Miller in 1906 the Northumberland portion was again given up as part of the Berwickshire Hunt. 1998 was the centenary of hounds being kennelled at Brieryhill.

Secretary: Mrs. L. Anderson
