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.
Our LEGO builders have been working every day, since our launch day, on an absolutely enormous set of instructions – and you can help them!
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.
Here’s our brick count as we start April.
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 May, you’ve helped us place 182,585 bricks onto the Chester Cathedral in LEGO model. For an up-to-date count, visit the cathedral and speak with one of our LEGO volunteers.
In the next few weeks, we’ll present several exciting special features which organisations or individuals could sponsor, and help us develop Chester Cathedral in LEGO further.
