Chester Cathedral



Chester Cathedral In Lego
Explore cathedral life in miniature and learn all about our 1000 year history as we retell our story, LEGO brick by brick, from the very beginning. The Chester Cathedral in Lego building project will take 350000 individual Lego pieces and transform them into an accurate scale model of the cathedral that will reach almost 4m in length and 2m in height. Members of the public will be able to purchase their own small piece of history in the form of a Lego brick to be included in the model and will be encouraged to learn all about the cathedralís 1000 year history as the multi-layered story of the building through the ages is retold, brick by brick, from the very beginning. Volunteer bricklayers will work every day of the week to build the model from the foundations up and it is estimated that the project will take up to four years to complete.
