Unusual sculpture and architecture
There are dome beautiful and life-like statures around and some equally beautiful and majestic structures . . . then there is the more abstract or way-out kind.

This is "Moa-bike", one if the exhibits for the Crucible 1 exhibition in Gloucester Cathedral. Of special interest to me because it is made of parts from a Royal Enfield Crusader motorbike, that was the last model I ever rode!

This is usually called "St Kyneburg's Tower" when it actually represents a well! Kyneburg was an Anglo-Saxon princess fleeing an arranged marriage. She was taken in by a kindly baker - but his missus was jealous and dumped her down the well. Presumably she has done miracles or something. Like her pure-in-hesrt rotting body did not poison all the locals?

Kyneburg's view from the bottom of the well.

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Cool! I especially like the well's decorative structure, despite its sad provenance.
