A bronze statue of Robert Owen extending his hand to a crouching child stands on a white granite pedestal which is placed on a brick base outside the Co-Operative Bank headquarters on Balloon Street SJ8498 : Corner of Balloon Street and Corporation Street.

The statue was commissioned by the Co-operative Bank as part of the 150th anniversary celebrations to mark the birth of the modern co-operative movement. It is a copy of the one erected in Owen's birthplace, Newtown in 1956. Owen is acknowledged as one of the formative influences on the development of co-operation in Britain.
