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.

  • Repeal the Hunting Act - take action now! For the first time since the Hunting Act came into force in 2005 we have a Government which has been elected with a manifesto commitment to a vote on the repeal the Hunting Act. We can be almost certain that Ministers will bring forward proposals to lift the ban, but hunting has always been a free vote issue for MPs so the focus now moves on to winning that vote.   So we need every single person who opposes the illiberal and illogical Hunting Act to contact their MP and make their views known on this issue.  This is really very easy to do - follow the link and complete the form -  Using this link you can email your MP, but please ...
