Meon Valley history.

The Meon Valley Beagles were started by Mrs Vivian and others immediately after the Second World War. Part of the present country was previously hunted by the Gosport & Fareham Beagles which are thought to have been initially founded by the Hampshire Regiment in the 1850s.

They were later taken over by the Royal Marine Light Infantry, but the pack was predominantly civilian by the 1920s. This pack seems to have ceased to hunt by the start of the Second World War.

For most of their early years they were kennelled at Peel Common near Fareham.

The Meon Valley Beagles have been kennelled near Hambledon since their inception.

Most (but not all) of their country is south of the A272.
