Skyhook (2) Trafford Park
Skyhook (2) Trafford Park
This piece of street sculpture was created to represent the industrial heritage of the world's first and largest industrial estate. One of a pair of 56-foot high sculptures named Skyhooks, it stands at the eastern end of Trafford Park, behind the former Trafford Park Telephone Exchange building on Trafford Road, near Wharf End.

The second one (SJ8196 : Trafford Park Skyhook) is located at the front the Exchange at the junction of Trafford Park Road and Trafford Road. They were designed by Brian Fell and installed in 1995, as a metaphor to represent for the regeneration of the old dockland area.

The project was funded by the Local Development Council.
