Lego exhibition of historic Welsh sites to be unveiled

An exhibition of historic Welsh sites made entirely out of Lego is being unveiled at Caerphilly Castle today.

The Welsh Government's historic environment service, Cadw has teamed up with Cardiff-based artist Andy Morris to make eight pieces for the collection.

The exhibition is part of Cadw's 'Pack Your Imagination' campaign that launched in February and saw Rhuddlan Castle created from 50,000 lego bricks by a US pensioner.

The exhibition includes pixelated Lego tapestries showing Castell Coch and Caernarfon Castle and photography that creates the illusion of Lego figures exploring Conwy Castle and Tintern Abbey.
