A Glastonbury man has been given a month to remove a large painted wall mural from the side of his property in the town.
Bill Knight applied for Listed Building Consent to preserve the painting, which depicts some myths and legends associated with Glastonbury, but his application was denied.
Mendip District Council has said that the mural’s “scale, colours and style” does not “preserve or enhance the character or appearance” of the property, which is in a Conservation Area.
I’m going to nail my colours to the mast and say that I have to agree with Mendip on this one: the mural is not in harmony with Glastonbury town. But what do you think? Should the mural stay or go?
