Stained glass to ABS

We’re in Shrewsbury: a quick lunch at the café in St Mary’s church before visiting “Brick City” – Warren Elsmore’s Lego exhibition in the Museum and Art Gallery. St Mary’s may have one of the tallest spires in England, but it’s redundant, under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust. The plastic (ABS) Lego-brick buildings in the museum are in complete contrast to the stone, stained glass and tiles of the church – or are they? The centrepiece is St Pancras station – it’s huge! Like a well-designed model railway, the detail rewards closer examination. We liked the chap with the camera, leaning back to get everything in (not, in this case, St Pancras) – but there are some very strange characters milling around the railway station. The exhibition closes on Friday 11 October
