The Land Rover Defender and Chevrolet Corvette are two of the most iconic vehicles ever produced. So it only makes sense to combine them. The East Coast Defender Beast SUV pairs the Rover’s off-road prowess and masculine lines with the Corvette’s power, resulting in a highly capable ride.

THE ANCIENT PARTY BARN IS SHORTLISTED FOR THE STEPHEN LAWRENCE PRIZE
“We are thrilled that the Ancient Party Barn has been shortlisted for the prestigious Stephen Lawrence Award.”
The RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize is funded by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, and was set up in memory of the teenager who was setting out on the road to becoming an architect when he was murdered in 1993.
The prize, which rewards the best examples of projects that have a construction budget of less than £1 million, is intended to encourage fresh talent working with smaller budgets.
