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.

27th June 2021 and on this hike around the backwaters of Swindon, we encountered Freddie Ljungberg on the towpath of the Wilts and Berks Canal twixt Swindon and Wichelstowe. The height of the bridge has little to do with canal traffic but enabled the line of the Midland & South Western Junction Railway (MSWJR - Cheltenham to Andover) to cross the canal.
Lakeside views in The Lawns follow; today's star prize to anyone who discovers the two wildlife specimens in the photos (both begin with the letter 'r')
