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.
Beyond Rudloe there be dragons - the people reclaim the streets of Larkhall - January 2013
HTV film of 1993 looking at the 'sack of Bath' with footage from the 40s through to the 70s
The film starts and ends with Wynford Vaughan Thomas on Bath before the developers of the 60s and 70s completed the work of Hitler's bombers in the 1942 Baedeker raids.
The Big Issue vendor who has replaced Tara (only found later in the day now), then Kev (backpacking in the Middle East) has a ripped tabard. Seems 'normal' for a person of the streets? Look further though and there is a lage gash across his thumb. Both the rip and the gash were caused by a knife attack when our vendor was trying to protect a lady being robbed outside Sainsbury's, Southgate. The attacker is now in prison awaiting trial.
Charity, comedy and tragedy
Dragons here - the gallery below is 'eclectic'; the pictures were taken at many different locations 'beyond' Rudloe. Some, like those of Corsham, should more probably be included in a 'Localities' gallery (I'll get around to this in the near future (speaking in May 2016)) as Corsham is not really too far 'beyond'.
