Is it a internal engine noise? Could it be one of the belt driven accessories?

It sounds like its coming from the back of the engine. By looking under hood could not see anything.

Could possibly be a broken or cracked flex plate. It is a plate bolted to the back of the engine that the transmission torque convertor is bolted to. If they are cracked or broken, the noise it makes is similar to what you have described. I would recommend having it towed to a repair shop that knows Land Rovers...

If it's a ticking sound and your coolant level is low, you may have a coolant leak causing localized over heating of the lifters and a loss of hydrolic pressure in that lifter... it could also be simply a bad lifter. Try some Lucas Oil additive with a fresh oil change and see if it quiets down. If your coolant level is low, top off and look for leaks. The DII is notorious for radiator and gasket leaks..
