It can be seen in Headington (a suburb of Oxford in the UK). It was the idea of Bill Heine, an American who lived in the house (and still does). IIRC, it was put up in 1986 and the ensuing furore lead to him becoming a presenter on BBC Radio Oxford who up until that time had been interviewing him on an almost daily basis about the fuss caused with the local planning authorities. Great way too get a job in the media :)
