Two of Bury St Edmunds’ most famous landmarks are set to be recreated using thousands of Lego bricks.

Moyse’s Hall Museum and Abbey Gate will be built in 1:40 scale for the Brick City exhibition, which opens on January 16 at the museum and runs until April 24.

The exhibition will see 60 famous landmarks from five continents around the world recreate. The Bury buildings will be built by Lego artist Rhys Knight.

Alex McWhirter, heritage officer, said: “Brick City celebrates some of the world’s finest architecture, recreated entirely from one of the world’s most famous building bricks.

“As Moyse’s Hall itself is an iconic landmark, dating from the 12th Century, we decided to have the building turned into Lego.

“Bury is blessed with some of the finest architecture in the country and the Lego recreations are a fun way of helping to tell the story of our town.”

The Moyse’s Hall build is planned to arrive at the beginning of February and Abbey Gate in mid-March.

The exhibition will be open during usual museum hours.
