Set in Salford’s Peel Park, Adrian Moakes’s Monument to the Third Millennium is inspired by the history of the River Irwell, which regularly flooded the park in the past. The five-metre high steel sculpture depicts a swirling shoal of fish swimming through a vortex of water and features a seating area at the base, from which to view Peel Park.

The artist worked with Salford University students to produce his sculpture, which is now located just behind one of the university buildings, nearby Salford Museum and Art Gallery.
