250,000 Lego bricks create the impressive ‘Garrison of Moriah’


A super creative Lego fan Gerry Burrows has created a huge world with Lego bricks. Sitting in a 540-square-foot room that Burrows especially kept aside for his creation, the “Garrison of Moriah” has buildings inspired by Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and the creator’s own imagination. Gerry spent a lot of time doing preparations to pave way for his huge work that currently stands at 28 feet long and occupies nearly one-third of the room, which means the creation is still growing, with a lot more work to be added to the impressive Garrison.
