Photos of Landrover World Show at Eastnor in 2008
The Land Rover World show at Eastnor near Ledbury celebrated the 60th anniversary of the production of the famous cross country vehicle. Many families camped in the Deer Park on the Eastnor Castle estate while others came for the day.
On the hillside Series I vehicles parked nose to tail to make the figures 60 stand out clearly (see photo at bottom), while enthusiasts and trade stands displayed their vehicles and wares down below.
Good parking was provided in an adjoining field.
The weather was warm and sunny and many people who had stripped off were sun-burnt. Fortunately there was a little cloud, so not as uncomfortably hot as some years.
Fortunately, earlier, our English Setter had been for a trim at Sambourne Kennels which was the home of Llinlow Setters in Jill Lane, near Redditch (since closed).
He died in 2012 age 14 years.
Eight years later, in 2016, the last iconic 'box shaped' Land Rover Defender rolled off the production line ending 67 years of production at Solihull. It was the end of an era.
