Thought people might like the look of this, if you're heading up North at some point this summer:
From the website:

Love LEGO? Interested in innovation? Then this is custom-built for you!

Local LEGO artist Steve Mayes tells the story of Northern innovation in over 40 intricate models, using 50,000 plastic bricks.

See how many of these northern innovations you recognise in the 3D timeline, which features everything from Stephenson’s Rocket and Jodrell Bank to graphene, virtual reality and the Great North Run.

Check out Steve’s interpretation and add to the story in the maker space by creating your own models.

    ^About 8 miles from me - handy! Bet I don't remember that it's happening when the event is actually on. Lots to see and do in and around Newcastle (and plenty of it free - Discovery and Hancock museums). 

    Always get a laugh from Beamish when they tell you all about the 1910 mining cottage layouts and it looks exactly like my Great Grandad's house in Horden, Circa 1982!
