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.

Migrating vulture under attack by gulls
Eclipse, Roman Abramovich's yacht (one of, presumably) at Gibraltar Marina
Russian billionaire Andrey Melnichenko's £260 million superyacht berthed at Gibraltar. The ship has been impounded due to unpaid bills of $16 million. Illegally-logged hardwood from Myanmar was used in its construction.
Modern Russian pirate ship 'Commander' berthed at Gibraltar. All is not as it seems as there was the deep hum of a large engine coming from 'aft' (ha-haaar - avast behind). The crew were most unfriendly - not a courtesy visit that's for sure.
South Korean shipping line Hanjin went bust many months ago; two of their giant ships lie off Catalan Bay awaiting orders
A terrace of new (and expensive) houses, below the Rock, in the South District
The cosmopolitan nature of Gibraltar is indicated by these premises close to the Governor's House
