About

The Duckworth family has been connected with engineering since James Duckworth, a precision engineer from Sheffield, moved to Lincolnshire in 1952.

James’s son Martin, another keen engineer, was particularly interested in motor vehicles. From the age of 12, during school holidays and at weekends, Martin worked for an MOT and servicing garage in Lincoln. In 1962 Martin left school at 16 years old. Having already moved out to the village of Ingham, Martin and his father James opened a village garage and engineering business.

A combination of Martin’s drive and enthusiasm for the Land Rover brand and an agricultural customer base, whose main vehicle choice for the farm was the Land Rover Defender, encouraged the affiliation with the brand. During the late 1970’s Land Rovers had started to dominate the workload of the garage. In 1978 Martin began writing to Land Rover hoping to obtain the official Land Rover franchise which, after a lot of hard work and persistence, ensued in 1980. A new premise was required which would need to be big enough to house a vehicle showroom, a workshop and a parts department. A previously derelict workshop was located in Market Rasen and after a series of rebuilds and renovations over the years it is still the location for the Market Rasen branch.

Martin’s eldest son Ben joined the family business in 2002 after completing an apprenticeship with Land Rover UK, gaining an HND in Motor Manufacturing and a wealth of experience working in various departments and on a number of projects at the Land Rover factory over a period of 7 years.

In 2007 Ben took over the role of Dealer Principal and expanded the business to include a second dealership in Kirton, near Boston.  Between the two dealerships Duckworth Land Rover now has over 100 staff members and continues to thrive due to having a passionate customer service focused attitude,  an exceptional team across the dealerships, encouraging and supportive management, and a wonderful, loyal customer base.  

Top class service! Professional, helpful, friendly and efficient where nothing was too much trouble.

New Defender Owner - Nottingham

A pleasure from start to finish. Mark Andrews could not help me enough, he is a credit to Duckworth's team. Also the driver who delivered my car on the day was a great help and went through how everything works despite the long journey he would have back to Market Rasen!

New Discovery Owner - Cornwall

I was looked after brilliantly. They dropped me off at the racecourse, where I was working, picked me up after racing and warmed me up with delicious coffee before I took my vehicle home.

Range Rover Evoque Aftersales Customer (Duckworth Market Rasen) - Immingham

Tim Smith is an excellent sales consultant, and understands the client needs, including value for money. When collecting our new car last week, my train was cancelled at Newark and Tim, without hesitation, offered to collect me from the station - What a star!

New Discovery Sport Owner – Lincoln

Outstanding presentation of vehicle. Excellent customer care. The handover room is superb! Just as we thought it could not get any better the Dealer Principal introduced himself and presented us with a food hamper. Well done Duckworth Land Rover.
