In this episode of the Bluebell Podcast Glyn is joined by our French correspondent – Paul! And without any messing about we start the podcast with a mention of both bluebells and France, and Paul’s endless battle to stop his French ruin from crumbling around him (OK it’s not that bad but maintaining it is like painting the Forth Road Bridge. Or own…
 
Glyn was hoping for an easy edit for this episode of the podcast as he had less time than usual to do it. This was all the invitation Paul needed to say exactly what he wanted knowing that Glyn didn’t have the time to cut it out! But being responsible podcasters we stuck to the brief. The main feature was a glorious walk we put together for Wiltshi…
 
A slightly shorter episode this week, although not by much. Whilst we have plenty of subjects in the pipeline to talk about we’re beginning run out of ideas. It’s not that we’ve said everything there is to say about Wiltshire but that finding the time to get out and explore is increasingly difficult. So we’re contemplating recording the podcasts on…
 
Since the main part of this podcast is about a short five mile walk we thought this would be a shorter episode than normal. But how wrong we were. We still managed to blather on for what seemed like hours! We kick off with some concerning news about some unedifying scenes in the Facebook Group today with a discussion about Paul’s bottom. This is a …
 
It’s been a busy couple of weeks since the last podcast. The succession of storms had an impact and Paul foolishly agreed to appear on BBC South Today to talk about the deprivations of a whole three days without electricity. What an embarrassment. Thirty minutes or so after the BBC left the power came back on! Meanwhile Glyn was dodging the roof of…
 
Glyn has a new toy. A 360 degree camera which he assures us will be used for nothing more suspicious than making videos for the Hidden Wiltshire YouTube channel whilst out walking. So watch out for more news on this, and more of our ugly mugs. Meanwhile Paul is traumatised having sold all his camera gear without having the foresight to sort out a r…
 
It’s the eleventy seventh of January and we’re sick of the endless grey days but Spring is in the air. We’ve seen snow drops and crocuses, and the River Till behind Paul’s house has finally risen from its dry river bed. It won’t be (that long) before we’re out taking photos of bluebells again, although in an act of extreme provocation Glyn has alre…
 
Something a little different in this episode – not a walk but a whole area! We open with a mention of Glyn’s talk at the Bratton History Association on the subject of Blind Houses at 4:00pm on Sunday 16 January. The event will be held at Bratton Church Institute. It is but a vicious rumour that Glyn will be performing his talk as dance. After sayin…
 
A Happy New Year to all our listeners. A new year and the start of our second year as podcasters. We still can’t believe it. Our usual round up of the last two weeks in Wiltshire was pretty spartan. Neither Glyn nor Paul have done anything other than enjoy Christmas with our families. Paul had COVID in the house so spent the best part of the 10 day…
 
Episode 26 of a fortnightly podcast means we’ve made it to the end of our first year of podcasting. And with the dreaded COVID-19 rampaging through the country again we don’t seem to have come very far. But this episode is a Christmas Special and when we look back over the last year we realise just how much we’ve covered and how far we’ve come. But…
 
A fit of the giggles for Glyn and Paul this week. In a break from tradition we recorded this episode in the evening and this seems to have had a disturbing effect on our sanity. But more of that later. This week we head to the south of the county again, not far from the scene of the last podcast. We follow a walk Paul did in May 2020 which appears …
 
Glyn opens this episode of the podcast with the announcement that he has moved the Hidden Wiltshire Headquarters from Trowbridge. Fearing that HQ had been relocated to Liverpool, Paul’s initial shock was eased by the news that HQ is now at Heywood House on Capps Lane just outside Westbury! And just as Paul was left wondering where Glyn had got what…
 
A real treat in store in this episode as we interview David Dawson, Director of Wiltshire Museum in Devizes. But first we have our usual round-up of what we’ve been up to since the last episode. The second Hidden Wiltshire book is approaching completion. Apart from providing the music for the podcast Steve Dixon is a graphic designer. He’s now cast…
 
In which Glyn bravely battles through the podcast whilst suffering from a long bout of man flu, with frequent triggers of the mute button as he splutters into the crook of his arm as instructed by the scientists. But, ever the professional, the listener will hopefully not notice! Paul is still in Dordogne so has obviously done nothing in Wiltshire …
 
Glyn’s been so busy since the last episode that he’s not done any walking or taken a single photograph. But that doesn’t mean he’s been shirking his Hidden Wiltshire duties. He’s produced the first draft of the second Hidden Wiltshire book which will be out before Christmas. This one is a joint venture between Glyn and Paul and will feature photogr…
 
Someone has called Glyn and Paul the Whitehouse and Mortimer of the podcast world but with more sheep. We’re not sure if that was meant as a compliment but we’ll take it. We just need to decide which one of us is Paul Whitehouse and which one is Bob Mortimer. Before getting on to the main subject we discuss the last two weeks in the world of Hidden…
 
Bit of a chaotic start to this episode of the podcast. We weren’t sure where we were. Glyn simply can’t get the staff these days. And what’s worse is that our reputation as serious podcasters is at risk due to the fact that most Google searches for reference material about Wiltshire lead back to this website! We’ll need to be a bit more diligent ab…
 
It’s been a busy couple of weeks and there is dissent amongst the Hidden Wiltshire staff about pay and conditions. Paul in particular is unhappy with the current working practices that required him to spend two full days this week walking in warm sunshine across the Wiltshire countryside, taking photographs and testing the local hand pumped beers a…
 
A welcome return to Wiltshire for Glyn after his selfless trip to Pembrokeshire in South West Wales in search of links to his home county. We might call it a holiday but he assures us it was all in the interests of Hidden Wiltshire! The link is of course that the blue stones at Stonehenge were sourced from the Preseli Hills some 5,000 years ago. An…
 
It was an important and historic day for Wiltshire when we recorded the podcast as we waited for the decision of the courts on the judicial review of the Government’s decision to build the A303 tunnel past Stonehenge and the Winterbourne Stoke bypass. Will the courts allow the legal change against the process for arriving at the decision to build, …
 
In this weeks episode we have our first guest – Hidden Wiltshire’s resident expert on Salisbury Plain, Mr Steve Dewey. But to begin with, Glyn talks about some birthday and anniversary milestones that instead of being celebrated in Rome, will be celebrated at Bishopstrow in Wiltshire – keeping it local! This weeks episode was actually recorded a wh…
 
Something a bit different in this episode. Instead of talking about a particular walk we focus on something that is classic Wiltshire. Something that we’ve all seen right across the county. The ubiquitous Wiltshire Clump. But to begin with we do our usual round up of the last two weeks in Wiltshire. We briefly mentioned the last joint walk that we …
 
Today’s episode is the second of our walks to include some location recording, which seemed be so popular (according to our poll of three listeners) following our first attempt two weeks ago. Between them Glyn and Paul have done this walk three times already this year. It was that good! To begin with, in our catch up of the last two weeks in Wiltsh…
 
In this episode we explore the expanse of Fyfield Down, searching out both hidden natural and human phenomena. There was so much to see and find that we went twice, and in the process recorded our first outside broadcast. But first, in our catch up on the last two weeks in Wiltshire, Glyn regales us with far too much information about his feet, and…
 
Today’s podcast revolves around the search for Kitt’s Grave in bandit country on the borders with Dorset and Hampshire. A story of historical fact or folklore? Or both? To begin with Glyn tries to justify why RAF Chinooks over Imber are hidden (he failed)! We continue with our review of the last two weeks in Wiltshire where rain largely stopped pla…
 
As we clock up double figures with our 10th episode this one is dominated by stories of some truly bizarre people including the gold suited Spanish dwarf Perro. But we begin with the prospect of a re-enactment of Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights by Glyn and Paul on Sidbury Hill. A prospect too ghastly for words. You’ll have to listen to find out more.…
 
An episode of mystery, intrigue and colourful characters. After all it wouldn’t be Hidden Wiltshire without at least one of these elements and we have all three! We begin with a chat about what we’ve been up to in the last two weeks since the previous episode. Glyn’s excited about his discovery of a new bottom, and an old coffin trail to Steeple As…
 
In today’s episode we visit Ranscombe Bottom, Morgan’s Hill and the very spooky Furze Knoll following a route that Glyn wrote about in his blog dated 17 September 2020. Use the link below for Glyn’s superb photographs and a description of the walk including the route map. But before doing so we have a chat about what we’ve been up since the last po…
 
In this episode we visit the hills to the north of the Pewsey Vale where Glyn and Paul have an argument about whether they are called the Pewsey Downs or the Marlborough Downs! But first we talk about a query from a listener about what to do when faced by a blocked public right of way. The answer is to report the matter to Wiltshire Council. There’…
 
In this episode we visit Castle Combe without actually going to the village. It’s hardly hidden is it? Instead we concentrate on the beautiful and historic countryside surrounding the village with its many hidden combes and bottoms (including one where we can only imagine at the derivation of its name) and its babbling brooks. We follow a walk post…
 
In this episode we continue our journey around the Deverills and the Wylye Valley, picking up where we left the walk in the previous episode at Brixton Deverill. We look at the extraordinary find of the site of a Roman villa in the gardens of a house in Brixton Deverill. We then take to the hills tracing a route to Brims Down, Cold Kitchen Hill and…
 
In which we follow the first half of a walk heading south from Kingston Deverill to explore the beautiful and ancient landscape of the hills above the Wylye Valley. An area that has been continually farmed since at least 3,500 BC. This is an infrequently visited area of great natural beauty with seemingly endless views. A place where you will find …
 
This episode looks at the beautiful and historic landscape around the villages of Edington and Bratton. We follow a walk that Glyn wrote about in May 2019 that starts at the Iron Age Hillfort of Bratton Camp above the Westbury White Horse, and continues via Picquet Hill above Edington after a short diversion to Tinhead Hill. We explore Luccombe Bot…
 
In this episode we move a little further east from the location for episode 1 to visit the Iron Age settlement at Knook Castle. We mine the rich seam of history to be found in this area, thinking about how it might have looked over thousands of years of human habitation and how this has attracted interest from our ancestors since the dawn of archae…
 
In our very first episode Wiltshire photographers Glyn Coy and Paul Timlett talk about how the whole Hidden Wiltshire concept started, and the journey that led to the launch of the podcast. We also talk about one of Glyn’s favourite walks and the hill forts of Battlesbury, Scratchbury and Cley Hill that dominate the Warminster skyline. Glyn explain…
