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.


The 'Sheffield Ground' (archive) webpage may, at present (April 2020), be found under 'Localities', 'Hudswell', 'Sheffield Ground' here: The Sheffield Ground. However to whet the appetite, here are two pictures of fine RNSD Copenacre sides from the 1970s at their 'home' pitch, the Sheffield Ground. The title picture shows poplars at Hudswell 'Common' in winter.

Back row L-R: Brian Look, Graham Smith, Neil Baker, Ken Newlands (52 years young), Alan Berry (manager), Alan Smith, Terry Rogers; Front row L-R: yours truly, Pete Ralph, Clive Beattie, Roy Howells, Frank Lloyd

£14,000-worth of miscanthus (the previous year's harvest) gone up in smoke in May 2010. This is the field between Rudloe and Hudswell. See also the foot of the 'Localities', 'Hudswell' (Hudswell) page for more pictures, taken by Tim Barton, of the miscanthus burning.
