Work on the Paternoster development in the 1960's was carried out in a joint venture by John Laing Construction Limited, Trollope and Colls Limited, and George Wimpey and Company Limited. The development consisted of a series of office blocks, a shopping precinct, an extensive piazza and a three-level car park.
In July 1975, a bronze statue of a shepherd and his sheep, sculpted by Elisabeth Frink, was unveiled at the Paternoster development by the world famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin. The sculpture was commissioned by Paternoster Development as their contribution to European Architectural Heritage Year. Among those present at the ceremony were Sir Kirby Laing and Geoffrey Anderson, then managing director of the Development company
