Hunting in Hertfordshire

Old Herts

The plan, when time is available, is to produce a brief summary of the stag hunts, fox hunts and harriers in Hertfordshire up to the First World War.  In the mean time I list pages on this web site that refer to various aspects of hunting.

A Hertfordshire Hounds Calendar  which shows the December 1897 programme including details of a hunt on Harpenden Common on 11th December 1897
