    The Ledbury Hunt dates back some 300 years and covers the area around Ledbury on the Hereford and Gloucestershire border. Bob Champion hunted before the war under the mastership of Sir George Bullough (Master of the Ledbury between 1908 and 1927) and his son, Nimrod Champion, was a professional huntsman, appointed by Squire York of Forthhampton Court in 1949. The Champions contributed to the Ledbury's reputation as one of the best two-day-a-week packs in the country.
