Welcome to the Rudloe and environs website.
Here you will find news, articles and photos of an area that straddles the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in north-west Wiltshire.
Contributions in the form of articles or photos are welcome. Even those with completely contrary views to mine!
Thanks to the website builder 1&1 and Rob Brown for the original idea.
Rudloescene now, in January 2014, has a sister, academic rather than anarchic, website about Box history here: http://www.boxpeopleandplaces.co.uk/
It contains thoroughly professional, well-researched articles about Box and its people.
Contact rudloescene through the 'Contact' page.

Now let's take a trip down memory lane with some 'archive' photos, firstly Box Highlands school. Note that the Box Highlands school photos below may also be found under 'Boxfields', 'Box Highlands school'. The photos below from the early 80s are also here, under 'Rudloe', as by this time, the Boxfields prefab estates were long gone with most people having moved to Rudloe.
