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.

The first Rudloe litter pick of 2019, on Sunday 6th January, saw a dozen Rudloeites (and one Corshamite - thanks Jane) venturing forth. The title picture is not untypical of the mysteries one comes across when wandering abroad. Just a little plastic bag ... but its contents provide the mystery ... an unopened bottle of Coca Cola, an unopened packet of M&Ms, a new tube of toothpaste and a toothbrush. What? Why? As usual, answers on a postcard to ...

 

But actually, as indicated above, this is not untypical. Also found, by others, on this first jaunt of 2019 were two, unopened bottles of Prosecco and unopened cans of beer.

Ready for the off are Jane, Madeleine, David, Brian, Meg, Robin, John, Rob, Mike, Jan and Dave with, of course, yours truly behind the lens

Beyond Corsham, Bradford-on-Avon is the most southerly Cotswold town. Yet here we have the Redcliffe arm of Corsham reaching out towards the Cotswold AONB with complete disregard for the nature of the built environment.

I suppose the caption for this picture could be 'a cow's backside' - I would imagine that's what the owners of the Bellway homes beyond the new barn might feel about their modified view.

Dave, who organised this litter pick, will inform Wiltshire Council that the bags can be picked up at the junction of Leafy Lane and Boxfields Road
