How one man built Norwich City’s Carrow Road stadium out of Lego

When Carrow Road was built in 1935, it took a grand total of 81 days.
A new version of Norwich City's home may have only taken nine hours, but – unlike the stadium itself – is the result of one man's labour.
Both were laid down brick by brick – but the one pictured here is made of Lego bricks.
Jules Richards, from Luton, has made a hobby of building English football stadiums out of the construction kits, and Carrow Road is his latest effort.
Cardiff City fan Mr Richards, 43, said: 'Last summer I decided to make a Lego version of Cardiff's stadium.

People were so impressed with Mr Richards' efforts that he began receiving requests to build more Lego models.
Demand has seen Mr Richards go on to make models of the stadiums of dozens of other clubs, with Carrow Road being his 35th.
It follows the likes of Upton Park (West Ham United), Hillsborough (Sheffield Wednesday) and the City Ground (Nottingham Forest).
Mr Richards, a supermarket manager, said: 'I've been to Carrow Road twice and it was a really nice stadium and a good one to build.
'However, I had a much better time building it than I did visiting – Cardiff came away without a win both times.'
• In 2014, City fan Steve Rix snapped up a Lego model of Carrow Road from online company Brickstand.
Mr Rix paid £299 for the model stadium, which consisted of more than 2,000 bricks and measured 70cm x 55cm x 15cm.
Mr Richards' model, which was commissioned by a friend, stands at around 15cm in height and is 37.5cm x 37.5cm.
It consists of around 1,500 bricks, 800 of them yellow and 350 green.
