The iconic Boston Stump is going to be made into a Lego model - measureing more than two metres high.

Special limited edition sets of the church are also being made.

The launch of the St Botolph’s Lego Big Build takes place on Wednesday, August 17 at 2pm, and is followed by afternoon tea.

The model has been designed by Bright Bricks Ltd, and is the first parish church, following projects they have undertaken at Durham, Exeter and Chester cathedrals.

A dedicated team of volunteers will construct the 100,000-piece model, while members of the public will be invited to sponsor bricks for a £1 per brick in order to raise money for the church’s education and community outreach fund.

When finished, the project will measure 1.8m long by 0.8m wide with the top of the tower being over two metres tall.

If you would you like to own your own Boston Stump in Lego, the church will also be selling limited edition sets, which will be available in the Boston Stump Church Gift Shop from September at a price of £54.95.

For further details, to reserve a model or to get involved volunteering with the project contact lego@parishofboston.co.uk or telephone the church office (weekdays 8:30am-4pm) on 01205 316130.
