A true Timperley landmark. Perfect spot for a photo opportunity! Go on, visit Timperley and have a photo with Frank, your friends on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter/Snapchat - or whatever floats your boat - will be green with envy! Oh blimey, he’s flipping fantastic!

I live near the statue and regularly pass it, it brings a smile to my face every time I see it. This is a statue for the people, not a forgotten politician but a real character.

I can't say I remember anything of Frank Sidebottom but if he was anything like his memorial then he must've been quite a character. A popular landmark for a popular person.
