It's a real shame James May's Lego house
has been demolished.

I like quirky stuff like this, Legoland
should've kept their word!

The two-storey toy house, created by Top Gear presenter
James May,
included great details details like a cat and
toilet roll holder but
was pulled down today after plans
for the Windsor lego park to buy it fell through.


It will cost about £50,000 to dismantle and reassemble.
Top Gear's website has set up a Facebook page
in an attempt to find a buyer. Legoland say the
house made for a BBC series Toy Stories is too
expensive for them to move it.


The house was built by about 1,000 volunteers
in Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey -
but now the vineyard needs the land
back to harvest its grapes.
