The £100,000 memorial is a representation of the Mark I Foster Tank, first designed and built in Lincoln in 1916.

It was placed on Tritton Road roundabout, close to the Wellington Foundry where it was produced.

The sculpture, which was made possible after a variety of donations form people and businesses, joined the city’s growing collection of tourist attractions.
