  • Absolutely mad but I am glad it's there. Read the history and the controversy. If you are in and around Oxford go find it and perhaps pluck up the courage to install your own insane idea. Love it.  more »

  • A glorious 2 minutes spent contemplating the fact that someone has put a shark in their roof and nobody has succeeded in telling them "you can't do that sort of thing". 4/5 would giggle at it again passing by.
  • Nice extraordinary roof to see and take a picture. Not easy parking in the street. Been there, done that.
  • Wierd and entertaining piece of... art? I love it.
