The Atherstone was established in 1815 in Witherley and known as the Atherstone hounds. Between 1930 and 1950 the hunt was divided into North and South countries, but these were then reunited.
The hunt still meets today and hosts its annual point-to-point event at Clifton-upon-Dunsmore, with proceeds going to local charities, such as the regional air ambulance.
