About This Hunt

Hunt Country The country which lies in Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire and Oxfordshire, is some 21 miles north to south and about 24 miles east to west. The country is a mixture of grass and arable. Obstacles are mainly a combination of timber and hedges. A well-foxed country, much work has been undertaken conserving and planting coverts as well as building hunt fences. A three-quarter bred type, able to gallop, and jump natural obstacles, sometimes in heavy going, is most suitable. The Saturday country in and around the Todenham Vale near Moreton-in-Marsh provides some wild, well-fenced country. Adjacent hunts are the Heythrop and North Cotswold to the south and south-west; the Biscester with Whaddon Chase to the east; the Pytchley to the north; the Worcesershire and Croome & West Warwickshire to the west.

Hunt History The Warwickshire Hunt's history can be traced back to its formation in 1791 when a Mr Corbet, at his own expense, hunted the country 40 miles long and 20 miles wide. Today, the country is some 21 miles N to S and about 24 miles E to W. The Kennels at Little Kineton were built on the existing site in 1839. The halcyon days for the Warwickshire were between the first and second World Wars. Very much recognised as one of the leading "Shires" packs, it had a succession of legendary huntsmen including Bob Champion, Ted Cox and George Gillson. From 1853 - 1985, the north part of the country was hunted by the North Warwickshire Hunt. Encroaching urbanisation forced this hunt to disband in 1985 whereupon some of the country was returned to the Warwickshire with the remainder being dispersed between the Worcestershire and the Croome & West Warwickshire Hunts.
