Shepton Mallet (pop: ~10,000), approximately 2 miles as the crow flies from the Glastonbury festival site (closer than Glastonbury itself is). Approx pop: according to the news ~177,000, and 50,000 cars or so. Fortunately this year the bass beat didn’t make itself felt in the back garden.

Unfortunately those wonderful people leaving early on Monday did. Thank you all so much for the extra 30 minutes I spent in the car this morning, next time, please leave after rush hour.
