A woman member of the Wynnstay Hunt drinks a tradional glass of port before the hunt rides out for a day's foxhunting. The Wynnstay Hunt, named after Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn, dated back to the 18th century and hunted on country estates in Shropshire, Cheshire and north Wales. Hunting with dogs in England and Wales became illegal on 18th February 2005 despite legal challenges to the ban and many hunts vowed to continue the ancient sport of foxhunting, risking prosecution.
