Land Rover military vehicle at Peterborough Cathedral
This Land Rover 101 Forward Control light utility vehicle was spotted in the rather incongruous setting of the grounds of Peterborough Cathedral. A total of 2,669 Land Rover 101s, which were named after their 101-inch wheelbase, were built primarily for the British Army between 1972 and 1978, with a small number being sold to the Dutch and Australian armed forces. The vehicles were powered by a Rover 3.5-litre petrol engine, developing 120 hp. They were designed to haul a L118 105-millimetre light gun plus a ton of ammunition. The 101s were decommissioned by the British Army in the late 1990s.
