Barlow Hunt

The Barlow hunt principally in Derbyshire but include parts of Nottingham and South Yorkshire in their country, which has contracted over the years due to the M1 motorway and expansion of Chesterfield and Sheffield conurbations. With the exception of some large estates, including Chatsworth, the country is a landscape of small, privately-owned grass farms.
