|In the center of Woking a giant tripod martian is standing.|
The Woking Martian sculpture was created by artist Michael Condron and unveiled in April 1998. It consists of three elements: the Martian Fighting Machine, the Martian Cylinder and the Bacteria.
The chrome-plated stainless-steel sculpture is 7 metres (23 feet) tall with legs 17 centimetres (7 inches) in diameter.
The Martian is a remembrance to H.G. Wells (War of the Worlds) who lived in Woking.
