The Great Wall of Swindon

Where is the Great Wall of Swindon and why was it built?

The Great Wall of Swindon flows like a river of masonry from west to east. It begins as a trickle from Rodbourne Road with a low wall of pennant stone. It reaches its full height at Bristol Street and continues towards the train station. – Jack S. Hayward
