THE MARKET PLACE OF MARKET HARBOROUGH, A FAMOUS HUNTING CENTRE

THE MARKET PLACE OF MARKET HARBOROUGH, A FAMOUS HUNTING CENTRE

The Quorn, the Pytchley and the Billsdon packs all hunt in the neighbourhood of Market Harborough, the old Leicestershire town which lies in that particular portion of England, traversed partly by the Manchester Road, where hunting is paramount rather than incidental. In the market place of this small and prosperous town is a quaint building (bottom), standing on wooden pillars, which houses an old grammar school, founded and endowed in the year 1614 by one Robert Smyth. By it is the church of S. Dionysius. The spire (top) is very fine.
