... has done just that - gone to ground! Since the sad death of Ron in September 2017 there are no more printed books available (unless you can find a second hand copy), so the Gone to Ground website has been taken down and the contents merged into this website. Here's a reminder of how and why that website was created in 2013:

In 2008, Wendy Fraser and I tentatively launched the Lakeland Hunting Memories website with the aim of making the history of Lakeland Hunting available to all. To our amazement the site became immensely popular and, at time of writing, has achieved over 190000 hits. From these beginnings came the books and magazine articles. However I grew increasingly frustrated with the attitude of a number of publishers and booksellers; to this end we are launching this web site. True to our belief, we will sell our books at realistic prices thus continuing our core aim of making the subject accessible to all. Whilst I publish my printed books, Wendy publishes them as ebooks that are available from most ebook retailers.
