Amazing Historical Themed LEGO Models by Brick to the Past

Let us introduce you to Brick to the Past, a team of expert LEGO builders that craft historical themed LEGO models. These are no ordinary models, they are well researched (plenty of reading and field trips), incredibly detailed for such large scale models and most importantly, tell a story. The team at Brick to the Past build for commission and of course, for the love of it.

In this article we will give you a taster of their work and our favourite builds. To fully appreciate the level of detail that goes into each build, we highly recommend that you check out their website and portfolio (linked above).

Historical Themed LEGO Models by Brick to the Past

Brick to the Past have built many amazing historical models, including the Tigelfah Castle, London in 1875, Hadrian’s Wall, England in 793, The Jacobite Risings, stunning Mosaics and much more. Let’s run through our favourites along with background info into the build.

Tigelfah Castle LEGO Build

The Tigelfah Castle and Town LEGO model was built in 2013 by James Pegrum, Jimmy Clinch, Colin Parry, Steve Snasdell, Luke Hutchinson, Barney Main, Thomas Coleman and Harry Russell.

Brick to the Past’s story began when James Pegrum started building a castle. This wasn’t just any castle. It was built in the style typical of an English/Welsh border castle of the middle ages, as one might have looked in the 15th century. The name Tigelfah means ‘colourful bricks’ in Old English. In designing his castle, James put careful consideration into the way Castles evolved over time. The central keep, was therefore theoretically the oldest part, and so was built in an 11th Century style with its square shape. This was further emphasised by the use of pre-2004 bricks for the old light and dark grey Lego colours.

There’s so much background info to this build (including a guide available on Brick to the Past’s portfolio). The incredible build features a Courtyard, Tower, Banqueting Hall, Monk’s Procession, a fully fledged Town with a town square, and so much more.
