Formed in 1839, the Tynedale Hunt is based at kennels located on Stagshaw Bank, just north of Corbridge in Northumberland, and operates in an area ranging roughly from the Tyne to the Wansbeck and from Hexham to Ponteland.
Despite the widely derided ban on hunting introduced in February 2005, the Tynedale Hunt is a thriving organisation that attracts active support from hundreds of people of all ages and from all walks of life, who believe that the ban is wrong and that hunting must be sustained as a viable and important part of life in the countryside.
We are law-abiding people, so our activities today conform to the law, but we remain deeply committed to safeguarding the traditions of hunting, the hounds, and the people whose livelihoods depend on hunting, until the day that the ban is repealed.
Hunting has been the subject of intense divisions of opinion for several hundred years, but we hope this site may explain some of the reasons we feel passionately that it should continue.
