Durham Cathedral

The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham was built between 1093 and 1133 as a Catholic cathedral, but now it is Anglican. For the past three years, a public project has been underway to build a LEGO replica, as a way to raise both money and public interest. It's been fun to watch photos in progress on Flickr and Twitter, and now the last brick has been laid. You can see a lot of in-progress photos here, see some films here, or visit the cathedral yourself and see it in real life, as it will be on permanent display.

  1. Amazing build - level of detail and size are on another level (both the model and the real life building).
