A world record breaking bridge has been on show this week in Kent.
More than 200,000 bricks have been clicked together to form the world’s longest interlocking bridge at Rochester Cathedral.
The bridge was constructed by BRICKLIVE, having been created for the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
It has been brought to the cathedral by the Rochester Bridge Trust, where it will be on display until August 29.
The 30ft-span structure is also the centrepiece of this summer’s free family activities, called the "All About Bridges" event, organised by the trust.
Bridge clerk Sue Threader said: “This free summer activity is designed to engage children, families and others with civil engineering in an open, easily accessible place for the community.
"We hope that learning through play and experiencing the scale model will encourage visitors to think about the impact of bridges and the challenges of construction.
“From previous experience we know that hosting a fun activity can encourage whole families to engage with engineering.
"This is important for breaking down stereotypes and helping children to approach science and engineering with an open mind so they want to find out more.”
As well as the world record breaking bridge, a selection of hands-on bridge building activities will be available in the Nave, with additional bookable activities aimed at children aged 7+ and toddler storytelling available on certain days.
Outside in the Garth Garden, the bridges adventure golf is available.
This nine-hole course introduces different bridge types to participants, with information panels explaining their construction and where real-world examples of each bridge can be seen.

Rochester Cathedral is open to the public daily.
