Peculiar. This looks like an entirely flat, theoretical downpipe the location of which is indicated by a stripe of bright blue paint. As such it's difficult to imagine where the spurting water is coming from.

The downpipe is one of the last vestiges of good victorian engineering, being formed of box section cast iron set into granite channels built into the side wall of Penzance Railway Station, once a beautifully glass roofed affair but unfortunately now just patched up year in year out, freshly painted downpipe looks great until it rains. The roof is now a curved sheet of something boring and corrugated.
