The Ice Cream Farm in Tattenhall is sponsoring a tractor at Chester Cathedral.

The model, built using more than 1,000 Lego bricks and based on a 1952 tractor, forms part of the cathedral’s Bricks in Motion event, taking place from Saturday, July 16 to Sunday, September 4.

The exhibition itself features 100 modes of transport, from cars, aeroplanes and locomotives, to horses, spaceships and of course tractors.

'A perfect fit'

Director of The Ice Cream Farm Jonathan Fell said: “When we were approached by the cathedral to sponsor one of the Lego models we jumped at the opportunity, highlighting our roots that are firmly in the farming industry.

“The event is not only a perfect fit for us and our demographic, we also think it’s really important to support our neighbouring attractions.”

Enterprise manager of Chester Cathedral Sue Petranca said: “We’re delighted that The Ice Cream Farm was so keen to get involved with our exciting exhibition and the tractor is the perfect fit for them.

“We can’t wait to kick off the summer period and we’re hoping that the public will enjoy the exhibition as much as we have enjoyed planning it.”

Proceeds from the exhibition will go to Chester Cathedral.
