A tall wedge-shaped metal column with a decorative coiled top. At one side are a series of vertical pipes which make organ sounds around high tide. Concealed pipes lead from beneath the structure and go beneath the adjacent sea wall and into the sea. At the time of photographing (June 2021) the lower part of the structure is rusting.
