A must to see not that you can miss it, definitely a tourist attraction, reminds me of a folly, what is it what’s the purpose

Known as the 'carrot', though it looks more like a parsnip, this is a waste of public money. There is a small kiosk at the base, sometimes open, and a small bus shelter the other side. The 'installation' has lights which at night were supposed...More

I wouldn't say to go to VISIT it, you can't really miss it though. It's just a neat landmark to observe.

This dominates the local area and nearby bus-stops and has an odd title. It doubles up as seating and at night is lit up. An unusual addition to one end of the High Street.

Saw this from a distance so went for a look. Not sure what it is or meant to represent. Was a kiosk at some stage but not any more.

Friday 21st December we were exploring in Weston-super-Mare when we saw this structure in the distance and we went to investigate.
