Banwen Miners' Hunt

Hunt type: Foxhounds
Areas: Carmarthenshire
Country: Wales
Contact information may be out of date so has been hidden.
Hunt country: Combination of hill country, forestry and farmland from the Black Mountains to Neath valleys, Swansea valley and the spectacular Gower peninsula. Hilly and wide open heather land.
History: Founded in 1962, registered in 1963.

The first home of the hunt was in a small mining village in Banwen, at the top of the Neath Valley. The first kennels were located in a disused lamproom of the village pit, kindly loaned to the hunt by the late Sir David Evans-Bevan. Founded as a true "working man's pack", the Banwen has been at the forefront of the hunting debate since its inception.
