Also known as “Parkway Man,” this statue of a steelworker is situated just off a pathway through Bowden Housteads Woods in Handsworth.
As travelers drive into Sheffield along the Parkway, the major dual carriageway that runs between the city of Sheffield and Junction 33 of the M1, the statue is just past a large supermarket at the Handsworth junction. The cast-iron statue stands nearly 10 feet tall and weighs more than three tons.
