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.

Church Walk, Melksham on a fine July day
Many disparaging remarks are made about Melksham, perhaps by those who have not explored its back streets. The following photos were taken on a short trip to Melksham made by train from Chippenham (there are now eight trains a day in each direction). The cost of a return ticket, with railcard, was just £2.80.
