Bricks from James May's Lego house to be salvaged

The bricks used to build James May's Lego house have been salvaged and will go on display at Legoland.

Over three million bricks will form part of an annual Lego brick building event at the Berkshire theme park.

Next season, thousands of families will have the chance to use the famous bricks and help build new and exciting large-scale models on the parks premises.

The announcement comes days after May's Lego house was disassembled because it was too costly to transport.

Legoland's Martin Williams said: "We considered all the options but due to cost, timings, logistics and planning permission, we decided it would not be viable to move the structure to the park.

"Our large-scale building events are always extremely popular with guests of all ages. Only last year thousands of children and their parents came together to construct the world's tallest Lego brick tower."

Mr Williams said the bricks would be used to create a "giant Lego set for the nation".

May's Lego House was built as a temporary structure by 1,200 people using 3.3million plastic bricks.

They were tasked with making full-sized bricks, each one consisting of 272 Lego pieces.

Builders then took over and laid the bricks over a six-day construction process.

Legoland Windsor will work alongside Lego UK and the event will benefit their nominated charity, The National Autistic Society.
