A Contest open to All England, in which the stakes will be valuable, is now maturing; but in the meantime a Chase confined to the county has been run and gained in gallant style, in the presence of many hundred spectators. On Friday morning, all the country round, and many sportsmen from a distance, excited by the notice in our last <i style='mso-bidi-font-style:normal'>Chronicle</i>, made for Cockshutt, where shortly after mid-day the following horsemen and steeds appeared on the field to contend for the prize:-</p> <p class=MsoNormal>Mr. S. <span class=SpellE>Denstone</span>, jun. s Tarporley, orange and white (ridden by the Owner)</p> <p class=MsoNormal>Mr. Watson, <span class=SpellE>nms</span> Bootjack, black and white (Mr. G. <span class=SpellE>Denstone</span>)</p> <p class=MsoNormal>Mr. T.

They started from near Stanwardine Hall, thence to Cockshutt, by Petton Old Gorse and Petton Lodge &amp; the left of Stanwardine Hall where was the winning post; being a country abounding in as many comfortable opportunities of neck-breaking, staking, ditch-grubbing and <span class=SpellE>summersetting</span>, for men and horses, as the most ardent sportsman could desire. Tarporley took the lead over the first fence, and led the way over the second at a rare pace. Pavilion making a distressing genuflection thereat which his rider soon overcame. Rat-tail jumped sideways at fence the third, and his rider divorced him. Some dismal drains and sunk fences succeeded, into the second of which Tarporley, Bootjack and St David tumbled, permitting Miracle to get a field or two a-head; but Tarporley and Bootjack having regained their legs, took drain after drain in gallant style, till the last, which was both wide and deep, and railed on both sides, and into which they both fell, Bootjack keeping his place therein, whilst Tarporley, gallantly extricated by his rider, was mounted and off like lightning, passing Miracle dead beat on the way, and with Bootjack second, leaving all his competitors far behind. The distance was run in 14 minutes; and was accomplished without accident or serious injury; leaving Stephen <span class=SpellE>Denstone</span> the stakes for his prize, and confirming him as a fitting representative of his gallant father, whose deeds in the fox-chase are the talk and marvel of every good sportsman. </p> <p class=MsoNormal><i style='mso-bidi-font-style:normal'><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></i></p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal><i style='mso-bidi-font-style:normal'>North Wales Chronicle</i>, 16.12.1837<span style='mso-spacerun:yes'> </span><i style='mso-bidi-font-style:normal'><o:p></o:p></i></p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>Grand Steeple Chase</p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>This interesting sport came off near the village of Cockshutt, on Friday last, Dec 1<sup>st</sup>, and the day being fine, a lively sense of confusion and bustle was exhibited. Indeed, so intense was the interest displayed upon the <span class=GramE>occasion, that</span> upwards 2000 persons were present, comprised in a motley group of carriages and gigs, with horsemen, footmen, and waggon men, affording a regular benefit to the good folk of the village. The inns were all filled; houses, bake-houses, blacksmiths shops and sheds, either for men or for horses, the great and small of the village, were well-crowded with customers, some eating, some drinking, while other were getting ready for the sport. In short, it was all fun and noise. </p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>At one o clock we took a view of the ground; the start was fixed 100 yards from Stanwardine Hall, the residence of Mr. S. <span class=SpellE>Denstone</span>; from thence across three fields to the village of Cockshutt, The Moors, Petton Old Gorse, near Petton Lodge, along the road, and up by the left of Stanwardine to the winning post, a distance of four miles, over a wet and heavy country, abounding with strong fences, sunk fences, drains &amp;c., &amp;c. </p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>After much delay (an hour and half after the appointed time) the horses and their riders were seen to approach the starting place, the riders in their silken jackets; and at the word  ready , off they went, bang over the first fence, which was done in a masterly manner. It would be difficult to say which of the first four, Tarporley, Bootjack, Rat-tail, or Miracle, had the best of it  Pavilion and Rory <span class=SpellE>O More</span> not getting off quite so well as the others.</p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>At the second fence Tarporley singled himself out, and cleared it, with the others in his wake. Rory <span class=SpellE>O More</span> and Pavilion keeping each other company at the same fence, Pavilion came down, and off came his rider but without much injury; and remounting, after the rest he went.</p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>At the third fence Rat-tail swerved, and his rider fell  and his steed having taken himself off, was not caught for some time. St David, who was leading at a steady rate, Tarporley, Miracle and Boot-jack, had now got a quarter of a mile ahead of Pavilion and Rory <span class=SpellE>O More</span>; but on crossing the road for the Moors the pace became very so <span class=SpellE>so</span>; though St David was still a-head from 50 to 60 yards. On arriving at the first drain, they all cleared it, together with the next fence; but at the second drain, in fell St David, Tarporley and Bootjack, but Miracle cleared it, as he did all his other leaps over <span class=SpellE>dranes</span> [sic], hedges and gates, which gave him a great advantage, and at that time he was two fields a-head of the lot. Tarporley and Bootjack, nothing downhearted, persevered and got over the drains except the last one, which was very wide, with rails on each side, and both jumped in it. Mr. <span class=SpellE>Denstone</span>, like a good sportsman, throwing himself off his steed, and horse and rider got out, leaving poor Bootjack to fight for himself. </p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>Tarporley, again all right, was up and at  <span class=SpellE>em</span> across the ploughed field for Petton Old Gorse, and for the road, where he overtook Miracle, who had caught it so well that out of the lane his rider could not coax him, although at one time he was three fields in front, and it was then thought he must have won. After this Tarporley had it all his own way, having left one of his competitors in a lane and the other in a drain; and on his coming in sight he met with long and <span class=SpellE>and</span> strong cheering from the immense number of people who had gathered together on the Little Hill. He was the decided winner. Bootjack shortly afterwards came up and was of course placed second; but what became of the others we could not find out, except that Rat-tail had been seen crossing two or three lanes, to meet Tarporley on coming in.</p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal>We are happy to add that amongst the very many mishaps of the day, no accident occurred excepting a few falls, with sundry spill &amp;c. The four miles was run in fourteen minutes and a half. The winner, after paying the usual expenses, will be entitled to 20.</p> <p class=MsoNormal><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></p> <p class=MsoNormal><a href="steeplechase_newspaper_cuttings_original.htm">Original newspaper cuttings</a></p> </td> </tr> <tr style='mso-yfti-irow:8'> <td width=71 valign=top style='width:53.6pt;border:solid windowtext 1.0pt; border-top:none;mso-border-top-alt:solid windowtext .5pt;mso-border-alt:solid windowtext .5pt; padding:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt'> <p>1837</p> </td> <td width=916 valign=top style='width:686.65pt;border-top:none;border-left: none;border-bottom:solid windowtext 1.0pt;border-right:solid windowtext 1.0pt; mso-border-top-alt:solid windowtext .5pt;mso-border-left-alt:solid windowtext .5pt; mso-border-alt:solid windowtext .5pt;padding:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt'> <p><span style='mso-no-proof:yes'>14<sup>th</sup> Nov.

The bricks are of the small Elizabethan type and beautifully mellowed by age. The house is three <span class=SpellE>storeys</span> and presents three gables to the front, the centre one forming a porch of equal height with the others. At the top is a stone carved with the <span class=SpellE>Corbet</span> crest, the elephant and castle, whilst lower down above the porch , is a shield with a coat of arms and crest of the same family. Above the right hand gable is a weathercock with the <span class=SpellE>Corbet</span> badge, the raven. On entering the house we find that the great hall has been partitioned into three rooms. Round the top runs a deep frieze with plaster ornaments in relief exhibiting a series of blank shields with scrolls or knots between them and trailing vines. There are two staircases of solid oak blocks, one spiral with central newel post, the other ascending with short rectangular flights. Many of the rooms are oak <span class=SpellE>panelled</span>, but the wainscot appears to have been put in at various dates.
