On Saturday 10th December we are delighted to welcome The South Downs Bloodhounds. Prebooking will be required and more information will be posted on our events page and Facebook page in due course

The South Downs Bloodhounds was formed on 2004 by the current senior Joint Master, Jeremy Whaley, who is also their Huntsman. The hounds hunt “the clean boot”, that is to say they hunt human runners that neither carry nor drag any artificial scent. It is quite literally the scent of the humans that the hounds are hunting.

The runners are called Quarries, and they set off between 20 – 60 minutes before the hounds are “laid” on the line. Hunts vary in distance, depending on the time of year and the amount of country available. There are usually 3 to 5 hunts in a day, and people may join for as many or few as they like.
