We would like to know the current location and condition of this memorial. If you have information about the whereabouts or status of this war memorial, please add any relevant comments to this record.

Status: Unknown
Type: Freestanding
Location: External
Setting: Unknown
Description: Serviceman/woman sculpture
Lettering: Inscribed on a plaque
About the memorial: Five-metre bronze sculpture takes the form of Aaron standing next to a tree, up which are climbing three children progressively representing the passage of time between 1950 and 2000, with the last a girl releasing a dove of peace. The statue was built as a millennium project and placed on this roundabout with a millennium fountain. There has been a campaign to move it to the Roundhay area of Leeds where Aaron was born, as the roundabout is difficult for the public to access. The statue does not seem to be on the roundabout in 2018 google street view images so WMT would appreciate information on its location.
