Welcome to the web-site of The Hunting of the Earl of Rone.  This annual custom, unique to our village of Combe Martin, on the coast of North Devon, takes place each year over the four days of the Spring Bank Holiday weekend at the end of May, and involves some 600 villagers.
We were amazed to find a lot of information already on the web about our custom - some of it totally incorrect - so we decided to put up our own site! Please browse the site, using the menu on the left, to learn more about this unusual and complex traditional custom, its history and its revival.  We hope you enjoy it.

Enquiries and correspondence should be addressed to: The Secretary, Earl of Rone Council, by e-mail at secretary@earl-of-rone.org.uk
