I HUNTING. I WITH THE LEDBURY. Hetbolpit Gate attracted a large field on Friday in last week, and a fine day's sport was enjoyed. Hounds were taken to Staunton Coppice, and a fox soon broke away in the direction of Gadbury. Swinging back round into Staunton Coppice, he started out for the Dow-n House Coverts. Passing straight through, he ran the brook side to the Farm Mill, then turning over Mr Ship- ton's farm, went on to Pendock and Redmarley racecourse. Here the chapers were in their element, for an opportunity was afforded of trying the mettle of their steeds. Near Mr Browning's there was a check, but a holloa for'ard indicated that our pilot had crossed the Ledbury-road. Hounds were soon set going again, running for Fairfields, where our fox turned left-handed, going through Hazeldene for Hillfields. Here he was seen to run the road, but all efforts to follow him proved use- less. Going on to Gadbury, a fox was soon away at the lower end, passing through Bupge Hill to Staunton Coppice. Without a halt he hurried away across the park, leaving the Down House on the right and the Rose and Crown on the left. He ran the racecourse to Pendock, where he got to ground after a topping 45 minutes. Finding again in Berrow Wood, our fox went away by the Limekilns, bore towards the church and over Mr Greening's farm to Birtsmorton Spinneys. Skirting the Harrells, he pointed for the Holly Bush, but turned left- handed near the Dingle, and got to ground near the White House, Berrow. Time, 30 minutes. On Saturday, The Trumpet was the venue. The morning was uneventful, little being done before hounds reached Wallhills. Hounds had scarcely entered, when a burst of music told us they were close at a fox. Without a twist round (as in usual on these banks), reynard went away at Red Hill, over the Flights Farm for Lily Hall. Bearing to the left he appeared to be going for the larches near the Hill House, but changing his route ran the brook side to Ludstock. Here he turned right handed over Mr Hartland's farm, straight for Hall Wood, through which he passed to Netherton Firs. At the top end he doubled sharp back, ran through Hall Wood with hounds sticking to him like leeches, and over the Velt House Farm. Crossing the Marcle-road the chase went merrily on across Little Marcle Court and the Brook Farms for Astwood. With a great cry, hounds pressed him away at the top end back for Wallhills, where they rolled him over after a grand run of 2 hours 40 minutes over a fine country, with abundance of "lopping." On Monday the meet was at Redmarley Village, but a most disappointing day's sport followed. Our first fox, found in Colin Park, went away for Limbury, and after a short circle round managed to get to ground. Some time was then spent unsuccessfully seeking an out- lier, Castle and Madam's Wood also proving blank. At the Fishponds a fox was roused that led us away for Ketford Gorse, then left-handed over Mr Jones's farm, pointing for Newent. Running a ring over Mr Stelfox's farm he returned by Pauntley, and went to ground near the Heridges. Hounds quickly had him out and thus finished a very poor day. n i'OK'AKIJ U.N. I
