This is a brand new, custom-built Lego castle. This custom Lego medieval castle was designed and built over three years using tens of thousands of pieces and is the only one of its kind. Lego MOCs are created by individuals instead of from packs as there are no Lego sets in the World remotely on this scale which makes this Lego MOC castle unique.
About this creation
Lego Woodstock Castle MOC is finally finished! It’s a 3 section build using Technic bricks to allow for pins to join them together & a “plate and brick sandwich” approach to the base. The waterfall in the side section flows down into the moat around the gatehouse, the main section features a great hall & town square complete with a blacksmiths and Tudor-styled houses. There’s a garrison of Lion soldiers under the command of Edward of Woodstock as well as a host of other minifigs.

I'm not sure who came up with the arrow slit idea first, but I think I noticed it on a couple of Pinterest boards and had to figure out how to replicate it - essentially it's done by placing 1x1 "stud" bricks facing inwards then attaching "2/3" style sloped pieces to them with the open section facing inwards. You can double up on the inside if creating an internal feature, or just leave it as a single skin depending on the build. The key to this in my opinion is to ensure that the outer brickwork is varied enough to look rugged as otherwise the overall effect is lost!
It goes without saying that this is a spectacular creation. I’m particularly interested in the build for the arrow slits - any idea where it originated? I’ve seen it across a few different platforms now, but have no idea where it came from or how long it has been around.
Stunning work here, Daniel! I totally agree with you, a custom Lego castle is about as good as it gets, especially at this caliber. The scale is pretty impressive, but I also like that you've made it moduled and fully designed inside and out. The rockwork is excellent, as is the water effect and the use of the flowers to add some vibrant color. Altogether, a truly beautiful and inspiring build, please keep making these! God bless, ~Promar~
