Opened in 1966/67 the Allerton Building was designed by Manchester-based architects’ practice Halliday Meecham. The practice commissioned the London based sculptor William Mitchell to produce a piece of landscape art to provide a point of interest in the courtyard of the building.

The three figures are each positioned ‘so that the morning and evening sunshines will fall on the faces of the figures’.

Though untitled, the sculptures are affectionately known locally as the Minut Men or Faith, Hope and Charity.

The sculptures were Grade II listed in January 2012.
