Synopsis

The Oxenholme Hounds is a fascinating narrative of The Oxenholme Stag Hounds. It introduces the reader to the participants of the hunt and their adventures and misadventures as they hunted during a six-month period during 1934-5 over large areas of Cumbria and Lancashire. The hunt was comprised of members of some of the most influential families who lived in Kendal and the surrounding area at that time and this book offers insights into some colourful characters and lively accounts of the meets they attended. The Oxenholme Hounds, which is illustrated with photographs and charming paintings, perfectly captures the atmosphere and the camaraderie of a past generation as they indulged in what is now a forbidden pastime, (although, contrary to popular belief, the hunt rarely resulted in a kill). After a long history the hunt was eventually dispersed at the start of World War II and was never restarted. The Oxenhome Hounds, however, remains as an absorbing and enchanting social record of a bygone era.
