History – Hunt

As in many rural areas the hunt was an important event.

Colonel Clutterbuck was the Landlord of the Star after Mr James left and it is during this time that Jean Thomas recalls, on hearing the howling of the dogs and the sound of the hunting horn, the villagers would stop whatever they were doing, gather up the children and proceed to the Star where they would await the arrival of the Hunt. 

The riders in the colourful red coats, would remain seated on their horses, the hounds milling around them whilst the Landlord served them their hunting cup and sandwiches before they went on their way.
