LEGO LOTR Garrison of Moria: Bricks Gone Wild

 |  |  |  |  |  |  May 30, 2011


One of the most impressive scenes in the LOTR books and movies is the Garrison of Moria. The incredible beauty and vastness of Moria was captured by a LEGO fan, who decided to convert a whole room into a tribute to this immense structure. We never saw the Moria in all of its glory in the movies or the books, but this build sure captures its essence.

The Moria was created by Gerry Burrows and he used up most of a 540-square foot room to house it. He’s been wanting to build something big every since he was a child. Once he bought his first house, he finally had the space to start building something huge. Impressively, he never once used schematics on paper or computer to get this done.

He confesses that it’s still growing. Currently, it stands 28 feet long and it wraps itself around one third of the room.  It has a depth ranging between 24 and 59 inches. It stands between 6.5 and 12 feet in height. He estimates that he’s used about 250,000 LEGO bricks. Eventually, he plans on finishing the bridge and building a fleet of custom ships.
