A ROW has broken out ancient landmark Glastonbury Tor - after a note was left demanding a BONGO player stop pounding their drum at the top of the hill.

The letter was pinned to a gate leading up to the National Trust Site - slamming the bongo-player for being 'selfish' and disturbing the peace and quiet.

The note says the music ruins the tranquilly and calm of the ''shared sacred place and space''.

Its anonymous author says people are "upset" at the bongo nuisance spoiling their "wonderful opportunity" to enjoy sunset atop the hill.

And they finish the note by suggesting the player plays for just five to 10 minutes at a time - then have a break.

Glastonbury Tor in Somerset, which is topped by St Michael's Tower, has evidence of an Iron Age settlement from 300-200 BC.

But it also has links to mythical King Arthur and is a tourist attraction to crowds of walkers - and druids.

The note switches between black, blue, and red pens - which locals say contains a pattern separating 'facts, criticism and feelings'.

Bridgwater Mercury:

It reads: "To the Tor Tower Bongo player. Please be aware that others choose to be here at this special time.

"This is a shared sacred place and space... yet you have very selfishly taken it over... to do your thing... regardless of others.

"There are many that come here (long distances)... to feel... and be in its sacred silence... to feel the beautiful energies and peace at sunset.

"You are very clearly and selfishly... not allowing others... this wonderful opportunity. There are many that walk away quite upset at this missed opportunity due to you.

"You claim to be attuned to this place... however... it's probably just your ego if you 'will not' consider others.

"Please allow silent spaces for others... say, 5-10 mins on... 5-10 mins off. Together we can all then enjoy this beautiful place. Thank you."

The note was spotted last week by resident Joe Smith.

Joe, 30, thinks he can spot colour-coding pattern in the text.

He said: "The black pen seems to correspond to facts, the red is for criticism, and the blue is to do with other people's feelings.

"We get all sorts up the Tor and for the most part everyone gets along. But every now and then someone goes too far.

"This bongo menace has crossed the line. Everyone has a right to enjoy the sunset without some pretentious percussionist pounding away."
