Welcome to Northern Brickworks.  We post something new about once a week, so do bookmark the site.  Latest news of Lego shows throughout the year is over on the 2019 Calendar page – now featuring 44 events this year!

Coming up on Sunday 23rd June is our display at the Lymm Historic Transport Day.  Lymm is at the junction of the M6 and M56, and the Day involves traction engines, historic cars, model railway displays, and of course, Lego.  We will be in Maple Lodge, the scout hut, and it promises to be an enjoyable day for the whole family.

Our 2018 build was a Crazy Golf course.  Here’s the course as seen at Bricktastic.  Elements of the course were on display at the North Notts show 2018, and the whole course was on show at Lymm, at Bricktastic, and recently it’s been on tour to Brickmania (Peterhead) and BrickLive (Glasgow).
