The Berkeley hounds are the oldest pack in England and are still family owned. Founded in the 12th century, they have been hunting foxes since the 18th century. In its heyday, the Earl of Berkeley could hunt in stages from Berkeley Castle near Gloucestershire all the way to Berkeley Square in London and back again.
