Area Rep: Ian Garner

I have owned 11 Land Rovers and currently have 5 of them. My current fleet is a 1967 109” Series 2A Camper, 1968 88” Station Wagon being restored, 1971 Series 2A 88” Soft top, 1974 Range Rover classic fitted with a Series 3 Stage 1 pick up body and a 2020 Defender D240.

I got my first Land Rover in 2008 when I changed jobs and lost my company car, it was a Freelander TD4 Auto. It was joined a year later by a Land Rover Ninety.

My Land Rovers get used for everything. The Defender is the daily driver so does the usual commuting etc as well as being the tow car for the caravan and car trailer. The others are used for greenlaning, shows, drives out, camping and more recently I started to use my 1971 88” for RTV trails.

Far too many good times with my Land Rovers to narrow it down to a single experience!

Check for corrosion on the chassis and bulkhead. Mechanically everything can be fixed. Be realistic however, it will probably be the slowest, most uncomfortable vehicle you will ever drive, and that’s why we love them.

Yorkshire & Peak District Camping Weekend

Waterside Campsite,
Barber Booth, Road,
S33 7ZL

A joint event between the Yorkshire and Peak District Area's and also Land Rover Life - Facebook community.

It is going to be a weekend camping in the beautiful Peak District countryside (Edale). We have a campsite sorted (Tents mainly, but we may be able to take Caravans by prior agreement), that has toilets / showers, and the use of a barn in the evening for a Saturday night communal gathering / BBQ (Bring your own food / drink).

We will have Greenlane routes sorted so people can self-lead their own groups!

There is also the Crich Tram Museum and The Great British Car Journey both approximately an hour away for those that wish to do site seeing.

The cost will be £40 for the weekend (Fixed price - per unit - 2 nights) and we will be asking for a £10 deposit – approximately 1 month before the date.

More details to follow, but if you are interested please let us know!
