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.

The title, scraggy pictures show Scraggers, a Gibraltar street cat who, we think, had been booted and so had a twisted jaw. In the coming weeks, further pictures and articles on cats and dogs will appear. This page has been prompted by a coming together today, 16th September 2019, of Milo and a pigeon on our shed roof - see the picture below. And following that, you will find the story of Tom in a .pdf file.
After Tom was killed on the Bradford Road, we decided to go to Cat Rescue at Westwells. Our instructions to ourselves were that we would not get a black and white cat as our previous b&w cat had been cantankerous and that we would get a long-haired cat as our previous long-haired, Sam, had been Esther's favourite. So we came away with Freddie a black and white, short-haired fella but actually we didn't choose him, he chose us.
