An exhibition showcasing Lego creations of buildings in the area is set to be launched on Friday.

Created by Watford resident Ian Davis, 59, it will exhibit local landmarks from Bushey and Oxhey at the Saffron Alice Gallery on Capel Road.

The models include buildings such as Mavis yarn shop on Bushey High Street, Lovedays Bakers, The Rifle Volunteer pub, Bushey Baptist Church and the Angling Shop.

After being built, the buildings are framed and ready to hang as wall art.

Mr Davis has a passion for creating Lego models, calling it an “absorbing puzzle to get the proportions and details just right in bricks”.

After taking time out from his work in children’s services, Mr Davis now splits his time between chairing Oxhey Village Environment Group and making Lego models.

Mr Davis also takes his enthusiasm for Lego into schools and makes bespoke Lego wall art of people’s homes.

He said: “What started out as a bit of fun – now I make models of people’s own houses.

“I suppose people are looking for an unusual or quirky gift and I think people like to see their own house represented in an unusual way.”

The Saffron Alice Gallery is a fixture in Oxhey village and regularly showcases local artists, with Mr Davis’ exhibition open to the public until October.
