This image, taken around 1930, depicts a house identified from historical records as that rented by Symon Latham in Bletsoe, Bedfordshire. A survey of 1629 names Latham's house as "Bells Cottage." The house was, unfortunately, demolished in the 1960s to make way for modern dwellings, but was virtually as Latham would have known it in this photograph.

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
