New Podcast celebrating Wiltshire

January 3, 2021 9:30 AM

A new podcast will celebrate the best, and often overlooked, hidden corners of Wiltshire's countryside.

Glyn Coy currently runs the Hidden Wiltshire website which suggests walks and highlights corners of the county that tend to go under people's radar.

The website, alongside its associated social media pages, took off and resulted in the first 'Hidden Wiltshire' book, with a second in the works.

Now, Glyn and collaborator Paul Timlett have pulled together a new venture - a podcast. The intrepid pair both moved to Wiltshire from other areas and share a love for walking and photography.

To walk in the footsteps of ancient people is, explains Glyn, an incredibly poignant experience and he hopes his love for Wiltshire can reach listeners of the Hidden Wiltshire podcast.

"Some walks are so quiet that you can barely hear a thing," he said.

Two photos from a similar spot - Oliver's Castle near Roundway. One was taken recently, the other is a screen shot from the movie "1984" with Richard Burton and John Hurt.

The first episode of Hidden Wiltshire comes out tomorrow (January 3) and focuses on the hills above the town of Warminster that are home to a smattering of Iron Age forts.

Episode two will explore Imber, an uninhabited village between West Lavington and Tilshead.

The podcast can be found at www.hiddenwiltshire.com/podcast tomorrow (Sunday January 3) as well as other popular podcast sites.

Episodes will be uploaded every two weeks and, in the future, feature guest speakers.
