Spen King at Tros Yr Afon farm, Anglesey.
Maurice Wilks was the Chief Engineer at Rover after WW2 and was responsible for the development of the original series 1 Land Rover. He developed the concept of the Land Rover at his farm in Anglesey (Tros Yr Afon) using the local dunes as a test ground.
Charles Spencer King was Wilks' nephew and developed the Range Rover in the late 1960s. In the summer of 1994 Land Rover lent a pre-production second generation Range Rover to Spen King and Autocar magazine for a "pilgrimage" article. This meeting is the subject of the commission from the current owner of the vehicle
