Gaye Kirby, Head of Development at Durham Cathedral said:
Members of a Spennymoor church have added two completed sections to a Lego replica of Durham Cathedral.
The congregation from St Paul's Church have been building the sections over the past few weeks. Donors bought a single brick for £1 each, raising £260. The two sections - a double and single archway - will form part of the Nave once added to the rest of the model.
Volunteers and visitors have begun building a scale model of Durham Cathedral made from Lego.
Supporters of the project are being invited to buy a brick for £1, with the money going towards the cathedral's Open Treasure. When completed, the model is expected to contain more than 300,000 Lego bricks.
Work is well underway on a Lego version of Durham Cathedral.

The 200,000 brick Lego model will be as accurate a scale representation of the Cathedral as possible, spanning 3.84 metres in length, 1.53 metres wide and 1.7 metres in height.
