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.

March 2018 - fruit and veg shop in Stokes Croft with blueberries and raspberries at £1 a punnet

The purpose of this trip to Stokes Croft was a meeting with John Briggs, author and photographer from Newport, to see and discuss John's recently published book about Lajos Nagy who was installed at the Hungarian Hostel at Thorny Pits in 1956. In common with other strange aspects of this story, we (friend Richard and myself) bumped into John at the china shop which is the headquarters of the People's Republic. Illustrations from the book Nagy's Room may be found in the 'Archive', 'Thorny Pits' section of this website here: Thorny Pits - Mar 2018 update
