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.

2019 will, no doubt, see the continuation of the battles against street litter in order to keep our streets clean but we must think of the damage the litter itself is doing to the planet whether on our streets or 'tidied up' in landfill or elsewhere. Science and technology, whilst having a beneficial effect on our lives, has created unforeseen (perhaps) consequences such as plastic waste and pollution. The title picture is not in our patch but shows a 'white good' (washing machine?), one of two discarded by the old London-Bath coaching road twixt Corsham and Chippenham.
The table below shows the Rudloe litter pick schedule for 2019. All picks are scheduled for the first Sunday in each month with the meeting point being at the junction of Leafy Lane and Boxfields Road at 10 o'clock; all equipment (pickers, gloves, hi-viz vests, bags) is provided.
