Please follow the signs and park in the field in front of the Hall, off Prestwold Lane. Horseboxes should park and unbox on the back drive of Prestwold Hall. Disabled persons may drive through the horsebox parking area and park behind the Hall.
All riders, when mounted, must not go around the back of the house and the church: please enter the park to the east of the hall and keep well away from people on foot.
Everyone on foot is asked to keep behind the barriers and well away from the horses.

All persons following the hunt and attending the meet do so at their own risk. As far as they can do so under the law, the Masters, Hunt committee, employees and agents exclude any liability for any damage, injury or accident whatsoever and/or howsoever caused.



The Inland Lifeboat

Lifeboat The heroic deeds of the Inland Lifeboat passed into legend with the untimely death of Charlie Brown. However, for those with short memories, we present again for your Xmas entertainment the story of its formation and the fabled Saga itself. The Lifeboat was renowned for rescuing cyclists who had become navigationally challenged and sometimes incoherent with enthusiasm after a Meet. The Saga epic retells a celebrated incident at Eye Kettleby Hall where the Lifeboat with Cox’n Brown at the helm battled through mountainous traffic in Melton to come to the assistance of an errant cyclist who had mislaid his brakes and was In Distress.
