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.

East Bath may seem a bit of an odd title for this webpage but there's an eclectic mix of photos here from Bathampton, Bathford, Batheaston, Bathwick, Fairfield and Claremont. The title pictures show the view east from Faifield, one of the interesting spaces at the refurbished 'Claremont' (pub), an evening view of Bathford from Bathampton and the old Avondale Hotel sign at the entrance to Batheaston.


Mentioned previously, but the 'washed out' colours are in those pics taken with the Nikon D90 SLR. Both my camera and a friend's have developed the same problem after some years' (five, six, seven?) use.

Bathford nestling beneath Bathford Hill provides the background for this Batheaston riverside view with red valerian (white version), hedge parsley and one poplar (but there were dozens here not long ago on this side of the river)
Now we can see the river and the red version of red valerian

Now we switch to Chapter01, formerly the Piccadilly then The Hive but now the excellent hands of Michael and Emma. The selection of local, craft ales is bloomin' marvellous but, most importantly, tis the best bus stop in Bath (electronic board is outside)
