The History of the Coniston Foxhounds 1825 – 1925
Nowhere in the country has the sport of hunting been more associated with an area than in the Lake Counties of Westmorland, Cumberland and North Lancashire.
Whilst hunting has developed in other parts of the country as amusement for the landed classes, in Cumbria for centuries, the dalesmen have enjoyed the freedom to follow their passion to the utmost.
Tracing its roots back to the early years of the nineteenth century, the Coniston Foxhounds have hunted in Lakeland for nearly two centuries. This fascinating collection of newspaper reports, songs, stories and early pictures, tells of the masters, the huntsmen, the followers, and the fortunes of the pack in its first hundred years.
