History

The Old Berkshire Hunt Ltd - The "Old Berks" dates back to 1830 in its present form but the country has been hunted since about 1760. See The History of the Old Berks Hunt, 1760-1904 by F C Loder-Symonds and E Percy Crowdy (Vinton & Co Ltd, 1905).

Hunt Country

The country which is in Oxfordshire is mixed, with grass, set-aside and corn crossed with timber and some hedges. There are quite a few streams and ditches including the infamous Rosie Brook. Hunt-owned coverts include Longcot Thorns. Following the successful incorporation in February 2004 the Old Berkshire Hunt Ltd is a company limited by guarantee. The Directors of the company are responsible for its management but delegate the responsibility for day-to-day management to the Joint Masters and others appointed to assist them.
