About us

We’re a club for like-minded Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) to meet and display their LEGO creations across (but not restricted to) the North of England. We are recognised as a LEGO User Group (LUG) by the LEGO Group and we collaborate with other LUGs across the UK.

We are run by a small committee who are elected by the members.  Here is the current gallery of rogues…

Nate – Chairman and Ambassador
Nate is our Chairman and Ambassador to the Lego company and keeps us in touch with the news from Billund. He is also a teacher in Worksop and came to prominence in 2017 when, with Steve, he won the first series of LegoMasters on Channel Four. Nate’s lego likes are Creator, Superheroes, City and allsorts!



Steve – Vice Chairman
Steve is a teacher on the Wirral and came to prominence in 2017 when, with Nate, he won the first series of LegoMasters on Channel Four. Steve builds modular buildings, City and Creator and he also has his own Youtube channel – search for his brickfilm ‘The Italian Job’.



Jim – Communications
Jim is the oldest chap in Northern Brickworks and remembers daleks before they could fly. He is trying to learn new tricks by coming to grips with WordPress, Twitter, & Facebook. So far, so good… Jim came out of his dark ages about 10 years ago, after getting interested in photography and acquiring his sons’ lego as they left home. His lego interests now include trains, castle, and modular buildings. Also zoos and golf courses!


Thomas – Treasurer
Thomas looks after the money and the picture shows him in typical pose, relaxing with club funds. When building Thomas likes fantasy sets and the collectible minifigures, and he’s also known for combining lego and Dungeons & Dragons.
