Rowan Naylor has been the rock on which the Four Shires has been built. For many years he and his wife, Julia, farmed at New House Farm, Hulland Ward. When hounds arrived, he immediately took to them and offered to be our Quarry Master. After a ‘hunt’ or ‘line’ of several miles, the runner has to be driven to the next one, so hounds do not hunt them on the lanes. Rowan assiduously learns the routes and ferries the quarry, so the days run smoothly.
