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.
