Here it is – the first completed St James’ Park made from Lego. One of three commissioned by Newcastle United Foundation. This one will be auctioned off very shortly. Number two could be yours for the price of a raffle ticket! Watch this space for more details…
Latest project folks – St James’ Park in Newcastle, home of Newcastle United Football Club. The Newcastle United Foundation have commissioned me to build 3 of these models, approx 26×20 inches. This is not finished yet but watch this space to see final shots, and to hear about how you might get your hands on one!
It’s done! My Centre for Life build commissioned by them that will form part of my North East Lego Landmarks exhibition opening there January 14th. A tricky build – lots of curves which at this scale are a challenge. Model is 20×20 inches square. More photos coming soon…
This is the Team Valley trading estate in Gateshead, a massive industrial estate that was developed in the 1930s as one of the first of its kind. It’s now home to 20,000 workers and 700 firms.
The land is owned by UK Land Estates and they have commissioned me to produce a 60 x 25 inch model of the estate in Lego. Watch this space for progress, and come see the final model on display at my North East Lego Landmarks exhibition next year.

Great news everyone! Next year I’ll be exhibiting my Lego landmarks of the Newcastle / Gateshead area at the Centre for Life in Newcastle. The exhibition will be on from 14th Jan – 23rd April. Click the image below to find out more. The Centre for Life has an entry fee, but the standard ticket includes access to the Lego displays.
I’ve had this build on my mind for a couple of years. I wanted to be able to capture as much of the detail as possible, including the curvy nature of the body, whilst maintaining strength and stability in a free-standing model, with no non-Lego framework or glue. I’m pleased with the result! The model is just over 70 cm wide and about 30 cm high.
