Foxhunting: Past, Present, Future? was a one year pilot project led by Leicestershire County Council's Melton Carnegie Museum.
The Foxhunting: Past, Present, Future? project ran for one year from October 2005 to 2006 with a major grant of £50,000 by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim being to impartially record the impact of the Hunting Act (2004) from all points of view and discover other foxhunting collections.
