Hounds and followers of the Beaufort Hunt gather before the Portcullis Hotel and onlookers on Horse Street, Chipping Sodbury. Then they're off down the High Street and into some fields where the hounds draw a fox from its covert. With the quarry in the open, pursuit begins in earnest: a steeplechase over walls and hedges. The fox hides in a hole but is flushed out by a terrier and the chase continues!
