Were you out with the Blankney or North Norfolk Harriers? [PICTURES]

  • Were you out recently with either the Blankney or North Norfolk Harriers when the H&H hunting correspondents paid a visit? If so, why not take a look at the galleries below to see if you were spotted by our photographers.


    Despite the almost gale-force winds on the day the H&H hunting editor visited, the Blankney hounds worked very hard for huntsman Philip Stubbings to give the field an enjoyable day.

    The hunt country lies in Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, extending approximately 20 miles from east to west and 11 miles from north to south. Neighbouring packs include the Burton, the Belvoir and the Grove and Rufford.

    Jumping mainly Lincolnshire ditches, the hunt dates back to 1871 and has existed in its current form since the end of the 19th century.

    North Norfolk Harriers

    A field of over 70 mounted followers enjoyed the hospitality at Holkham Hall on a frosty New Year’s Eve to enjoy a day with the harriers.

    This is the only pack of West Country Harriers in East Anglia, where the country extends north of the Norwich/Fakenham road, all the way to the broads and the sea.
