Packington Hall has a history steeped in Forestry and Hunting and still has large areas of the original ‘Forest of Arden’ that once stretched from Stratford upon Avon in the South to Stafford in the North. The Parkland Setting and surrounding countryside make the perfect ground for holding and flushing winged quarry. The Estate hosts a number of ‘dog trials’ each year and these range from events for local trailing clubs to national competitions that may be held over several days. The days are arranged through the head game keeper whom ensures the days are planned and executed precisely.
