Lego Lake District

Derbyshire artist spent £4k building replica of the Lake District from 200,000 Lego bricks
A Derbyshire artist who spent £4,000 building a replica model of the Lake District out of 200,000 bricks of LEGO has seen his completed creation go on display for the first time.

Jon Tordoff, 54, began constructing the 150 sq ft model of the National Park two years ago during lockdown as a way to relax at his home in Milford, Derbyshire.

But what began as a to-scale replica of Buttermere Lake soon went on to include Crummock Water, Derwentwater, Borrowdale and Honister Pass.

The huge 14.5ft x 10ft artwork got so big for the keen fell walker's cottage home that he has never seen it all put together - until now.

The stunning creation has been public display for the first time at Belper Library.
