Single-again Barry King has completed his stunning matchstick model of the front of Salisbury Cathedral - thanks to an old flame.<br />
<br />
Barry began the painstaking project in 2012 but downed tools when he become distracted by a long-term relationship.<br />
<br />
But after the couple split up last year, Barry resumed his hobby and completed the replica of the West Front of the Wiltshire cathedral using 730,000 matches.<br />
<br />
The stunning model will go on public display in Salisbury from August 19.
