“It used to be blue,” writes photographer Neil Owen about this intriguing cylindrical structure in the heart of Swindon, Wiltshire. Owen adds: “Now it’s a rather unexpected Aztec/Inca theme? Still can’t work out what it is for.”

The enigmatic structure is situated on a pedestrianised side street just off Regent Circus near the Museum of Computing. Check it out on Google Earth here. An image on Street View (below) shows the artwork to be in a similar condition to the photograph above, albeit with more red paint splashed across its surface.
