A meet of the Old Berks Hunt in Abingdon was once a popular event, especially on Boxing Day.
A crowd would gather to see the horses, hunts people and hounds. Pete lent me some old slides so I have added his name to the pictures. They appear to be from the mid 1970s.
Owing to the cold wind, it was not a good scenting morning that day.
The only fox gave them a run round near Bagley Woods, and was lost.
Fox Hunting has been banned since 2005 and since then the Old Berks Hunts have carried out trail hunting. They are based near Faringdon and no longer come to Abingdon on Boxing Day.
