MADAM - As members of the National Trust for several years, my husband and I are appalled to hear that Hanbury Hall has been granted a licence to hunt.

We have been visiting very regularly with our grandsons but will NOT be doing so in future until all forms of hunting there are stopped.

Such barbaric behaviour should not be tolerated and hopefully others will follow our example and stay well away.

When planning a visit to other National Trust properties I will first enquire if they too have a hunting licence as it is not listed under Events.

I wonder why !
