  • Can you help solve a mystery? - Does anyone have any ideas about this photo of the 9th Duke of Beaufort.Please click for image. It looks like a presentation, and we would be really interested to know where it is and if possible what it is about. The 9th Duke was born in 1847 and died in 1924. We think the date is somewhere in the early 1900’s. Ideas to pr@beauforthunt.com.
    P.S. Your webmaster has been doing some detective work. The picture shows the presentation to Colonel Frank Henry at Elmestree, Doughton in November 1912; he having been Secretary of the Hunt for 24 years. Any information regarding who the others are?

The Beaufort Hunt, along with other hunts, have changed their rules to state:

  • That we intend to carry out only legal activities.
  • Farmers, Subscribers, Members and Followers have been informed to this effect.
  • Along with other hunts, we regard this as a temporary ban.
  • We will continue to campaign to prove that this ban is detrimental to animal welfare.
  • The Beaufort will continue to raise funds to pay for legal challenges.
  • We will continue to work towards maintaining employment both within the Hunt as well as related trades.
  • The Beaufort Hunt intends to maintain a workable pack of hounds to keep the Beaufort bloodlines that are renowned across the United Kingdom and indeed worldwide.
  • We are determined to keep our community together.
  • We will continue to raise funds for local charities.
