In Instagram

Last weekend (7-9 September) Matt Tyrer, known on Instagram fittingly as @matt.tyrer, took over our Instagram account to share his vision of Wiltshire.

Matt has been in Wiltshire for 18 years now, first working in Salisbury and now living in Warminster. Matt’s photo’s focus on capturing history and beauty within the UK and Ireland.

His takeover this weekend took our followers around the south of Wiltshire, displaying some excellent views the south of the county has to offer as well as sharing Wiltshire's history. From his wonderful photos, it is obvious that he is enormously talented and can position the perfect shot.

Here are just a few places he shared with us during the weekend.

Old Wardour Castle - "Looking at this ruined side, you might be surprised to learn that you can still access the upper stories close to the top of the castle via an old spiral staircase and you are rewarded with a lovely view of the woods, lake and fields that lie behind where this photo is taken from."

King Alfred's Tower - "Near to this spot is ‘Egbert’s Stone’ where it is believed Alfred the Great, King of Wessex rallied the Saxons before the landmark Battle of Edington in May 878 AD, hence the name of the tower"

Wilton House -  "not just a Palladian Bridge, but ‘the’ Palladian bridge!"

Salisbury Cathedral - "The cathedral is also home to a clock that has a claim to being the oldest in the world, containing some original parts from 1386"
