Farewell to a Great British Icon: The Land Rover

It was the end of an era when the last Land Rover Defender manufactured in Britain left the factory.

A tidy 1956 Land Rover pick-up seen at the recent Llandudno Transport Festival. Some say that the original Land Rover design, which dates to the late 1940s, remained almost unchanged right up until the final Defender, but in truth there have been many alterations along the way.
