300,000 LEGO® bricks!

In one of the most ambitious build projects of the last few years, Chester Cathedral is being recreated, brick-by-brick, using LEGO pieces.

The model base measures 4m x 2m and it’s only when you are standing next to it that you realise the scale of this project. We’ve built some ‘special features’ too, including the Grand Organ, the Quire Stalls and the War Memorial – all created with LEGO® bricks.

Our LEGO® builders have been working every day, since our launch day, on an absolutely enormous set of instructions – and you can help them!


£1 = 1 LEGO® brick!

You can help keep our model growing, and for a good cause…
Every £1 donation, which gives you one brick to add to the cathedral, goes towards the Chester Cathedral Education Trust Fund, enabling us to continue our fantastic work with schools across Cheshire and beyond.


Brick Count

Come along and help our brick count to increase.  You directly contribute to the growth and success of Chester Cathedral in LEGO®!  As we step into 2021, you have now placed 223,534 bricks onto the Chester Cathedral in LEGO® model; just 12,400 were added in 2020 due to restrictions placed upon the Cathedral.  That said, we’re still moving towards the end of the project… even though we’re currently closed, help us keep building by donating to the project’s JustGiving page here (and we’ll post updates as and when our team can add bricks!)
