The Gate built brick by brick!

It’s Ashton Gate – like you’ve never seen it before.

Made up of around 1,500 tiny Lego pieces, a replica has been produced of Ashton Gate Stadium in its fully-redeveloped guise.

Chris Smith is the man behind the miniature stadium, one of 44 he has now produced in his overall project to replicate all 92 Premier and EFL stadia.

Smith told bcfc.co.uk: “I was struggling so much with it that I drove from my home in Manchester down to Ashton Gate to get some inspiration.

“I did it as a commission for somebody. I’ve now completed 44 of the 92 grounds in England – and it’s taken me three years to get this far.”

The intricate details are all there; the big screens, the corporate boxes in the Lansdown Stand, the in-seat lettering and even the precise shaping of Ashton Gate’s external walls.

The much-heralded redevelopment of Ashton Gate cost £45m and was two years in the making. As for the Lego replica, well that took two weeks and the cost to purchase is…£300.

Smith added: “Anyone wanting to commission a Lego Ashton Gate should contact me via e-mail, to chris@brickstand.co.uk, or on Twitter.”
