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.

June's litter pick finds John rummaging about in the Bradford Road verge. On my side of the road is a typical find - a half-full bottle of pop. Interesting that many of the bottles and cans recovered on the litter picks still contain a considerable amount of liquid (usually beer or cider). The pictured bottle contains half of its dandelion and burdock and still had quite a bit of fizz; the released aroma was a reminder of childhood and the corner shops in the back streets of Stockton Heath (Warrington). But why do people chuck away so much of their purchases?
