Synopsis

In February 2005, shortly before the “ban” came in, I sat on a cold sunlit fell-side with my son.
We sat waiting, trying to keep warm in the cutting wind. “Soon this will be gone,” I said, “and personally I don’t think it will come back.”
He looked at me. “Maybe you’re right,” he said. “You’ve followed hounds all your life, you have loads of stories. Why not record them as a bit of history?”
From this casual remark evolved the popular website 'Lakeland Hunting Memories'.
Ron Black, like his forefathers, was born and raised in the English Lake District and here relates some of his memories of hunting with hounds, competing in fell races, the heroic exploits of his family members, along with historical accounts written in the 1800s and earlier. An evocative, and frequently amusing, record of the characters, social history and culture of the fells. Have a look at Ron’s website www.lakelandhuntingmemories.com
