The Blencathra Foxhounds are one of a number of fell packs associated to (but not members of ) the Masters of Foxhounds Association. They are one of six Fell packs in Cumbria
Because of the terrain, mounted hunting is not feasible in the Lake District. Lakeland foxhounds are lighter and more agile than hounds bred by mounted packs and they are bred to cope with difficult terrain. During the summer closed season, hounds from all fell packs are shown in competition at annual Lakeland shows including Rydal, Lowther and the Threlkeld Puppy Show.
This year the Blencathra Fellhounds were on display at their kennels within The Foxhound enclosure.
