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.

Viki returning to base after injuring her hand in the constant battle against litter. This 7th April 2019 battle was illustrated later when, a few hours after the litter pick, about fifteen items of McDonald's detritus (bags, boxes, cups, sauce containers) were found scattered on the A4 above Copenacre (see last picture).

John, Gordon, Rod, John II, Lorraine, Pat, Viki and Robin prepare for the off as Dave fantasises
Dave now shows the group some of his dance moves
John, Rod, Lorraine and Pat head off to do Westwells Road and Bradford Road

Two bags full - Robin and Dave heading back up the A4
Gordon at the brow of Box Hill, By Brook Valley beyond
Rod returning from Westwells Road with split bag
Not a bad haul but actually it's a disgrace really that this amount of litter is discarded in and around Rudloe every month. And, of course, this is happening all over the country.
This illustrates the problem. Just a couple of hours after the litter pick, someone chucked their McDonald's bag out of a car on the A4. These 15 items were scattered all over the road and verge. It's a never-ending battle.
