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 Plaza Mayor in Caceres whose old walled city was declared a World Heritage Site in 1986

Nights in a Spanish Garden (name that composer). Not only is Caceres a World Heritage Site but it is a place of amazing coincidences. Unbeknown to us, friends Paul and Liz from Chippenham were travelling from Madrid to Seville by train, stopping off at various places en route. And blow me down if we didn't bump into them at the reception desk of the Caceres Parador.

Here's a pot luck turntable inside a small chapel. You decide which item (described as rosary beads) you want from the list, put your money in the slot and small cakes appear on the turntable.
