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.

1st December 2019 brought a fine day for the Rudloe and environs litter pick. The title pictures show Rod heading south at Thorneypits, John in White Ennox Lane, Howard in Boxfields Road and couple of festive horses at the junction of Boxfields Road and Leafy Lane.

Getting ready for the off ... Mike is already off; others are John, Howard, Tricia, Lorraine, Rod, Dave, Jan (hidden), David, a headless man (Gordon) and John with Derrick yet to arrive
Morecambe and Wise? Ant and Dec? The two Ronnies? No, it's the Derrick and John show.
Rod in a relatively quiet Bradford Road which is normally like a race track
Jan approaching the Bradford Road in White Ennox Lane
John also in White Ennox Lane (as am I) so it should be pretty well cleared by the time we have finished
The delights of the hedgerow in White Ennox Lane; rose hips (edible via jam, jelly, syrup etc) with black bryony (poisonous) below
Now Rod makes his way up White Ennox Lane with a fine toothcomb
More rubbish which, unfortunately, could not be removed. Who would care if anyone turned here once in a blue moon?
Howard in Boxfields Road
Man's appetite for meat is one of the biggest drivers of global warming; larches in Leafy Lane Wood are displaying their typical autumn colour
Man's appetite for meat ... ah, we've done that one. This is one of the sites of the Boxfields prefabs in Boxfields Road.
And beyond the Boxfields prefab site we have 'The Village on the Hill' with its fine inns, the Fox and Hounds and the Six Bells
Reindeer replacements in Boxfields Road practising for the Christmas Eve run
And this is this month's haul which is significant but not as large as it might have been before our monthly endeavours started
