The Gateshead Millennium Bridge LEGO set! This iconic bridge - the most recent of the 7 that cross the Tyne between Gateshead and Newcastle - was opened in 2001. Designed by Wilkinson Eyre its unique tilting mechanism allows it to open to let ships through. Its my personal favourite of the bridges of the Tyne and sits upstream from the Tyne Bridge complementing it beautifully.
This LEGO model includes a tilt mechanism that allows the bridge to be displayed in open or closed positions.
As with all my sets it comes with:
- all the parts required (genuine LEGO)
- printed booklet
- signed and numbered box, making it a great gift or collector's item
For a larger one-off version created as part of the Great Exhibition of the North in 2018 see here.
This set joins a few other icons of Tyneside that I've designed as Limited Edition LEGO sets including:
The Tyne Bridge (built at the same scale)
Newcastle Gateshead skyline LEGO set - which features a micro-scale version of the bridge
The set uses only genuine LEGO parts but is an independent design by Brick This.
International shipping is available for all my sets - see rates at checkout.
