We are pleased to reveal our exciting, unique addition to the children’s playground – a brand new Land Rover Defender! The full size Defender was donated to Eastnor Castle by Land Rover to celebrate over 50 years of vehicle testing on the estate. The Land Rover has been fully child proofed and it sits alongside the existing tractor and motorbike, however, it doesn’t have an engine so will not be going for any fun rides!
David Littlewood, General Manager “We are very proud of the Land Rover and are hoping it will prove to be extremely popular. It’s probably the first time a brand new Land Rover has been used in a playground and I am sure it will survive all the inquisitive children playing with it. We are grateful to Land Rover for the enormously generous gift and hope they will be on the estate for the next 50 years”.
A new zip wire also be installed in the playground as part of the upgrade and will be ready to welcome the first visitors of the season on Good Friday for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.
