The origins of this well known and prestigious pack of hounds can be traced back to the 18th century.

The Meynell and South Staffordshire are privileged to have one of the most varied, interesting and challenging grass countries in the whole of England.

The hunting country spreads across a large part of Derbyshire and Staffordshire; from the north of Ashbourne down to Lichfield in the south, across to Derby in the east and Cannock Chase to the west.

The Autumn hunting season starts in September depending on harvest, when young hounds are introduced to hunting life by their more experienced friends. During this period both horses and hounds are being prepared for the opening of the season in late October.
The hounds hunt three days a week; Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

At all times the Meynell and South Staffordshire Hunt intends to hunt within the law, performing legal activities permitted within the restrictions of the Hunting Act 2004.

The Joint Masters and all who hunt are deeply grateful to everyone who allows them to cross their land, enabling them to enjoy the thrill of trying to follow hounds in one of the most demanding and exciting hunting countries in England.
