45 Pipework Sculpture or creative Plumbing?

I shall be flabbergasted if anyone can tell me where this pipework sculpture is. It’s behind shops somewhere in central Buckingham, that’s all I can really tell you without being exact.

These pipes don’t seem to have been planned but added as required, giving them an organic feel. I can imagine them being added over the years as new amenities were added inside the building. The plumber carefully planning how to do the job. Or maybe there was a creative plan in action? Whatever the history, it’s a charming little pipework sculpture.
