They had a great day out. I had stayed at the farm to help "hold the fort" and so requested a few photos of the day. They were not able to take any in the factory itself but managed a few in the exhibition showing some vintage models.

Going on a Birthday Treat
Father and daughter went off on Tuesday morning to enjoy their joint birthday treat from me. They left at 5.30 in the morning to travel up to Solihull to the Landrover factory. They were booked in to a Celebratory tour of the Defender construction line. The Defender is the "proper" Landrover unlike the more luxury models that have come since such as the Range Rover and Discovery. It's manufacture is due to come to an end in January so this was one of the last opportunities to see the final few being built in the traditional way by hand.
