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.

WSHC - HER? Wiltshire & Swindon History Centre - Historical Environment Records. On 16th September 2020, WSHC researcher Jacqui Ramsay set out on a short walk
from her home in Corsham to Pickwick. On the face of it, this would appear to be a rather humdrum perambulation, however ...
Jacqui's description of the walk illustrates the wealth of history that surrounds us. Even on this walk which can be no more than a mile or so, she lists a dozen historic sites, information on which may be found through WSHC's HERs! These range from MWI74074 - Second World War Allotments, The Corsham School through MWI76326 - Neolithic Pit to MWI65891 - Guyer's House.
The walk may be found in the WHSC blog 'Lockdown walk with a difference': Jacqui's walk. The HERs that she references may be found here: HER index and may be accessed by, for example, entering the HER number (e.g. MWI65891 for Guyer's House) in the appropriate box.
