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.

6th September 2020 finds David and John P venturing forth in the Bradford Road on the Rudloe litter-pick. The yellow lines were finally painted here in the winter of 2014/15 following the installation of a new school gate in September 2010. One of the many emails sent on this subject read as follows: "Once again, I'm afraid, I have to pen my incredulity that the authorities, including the executive head of the school, the governors, Wilts CC (Health and Safety, Road Safety, Development Management, Area Board and so on), the Parish Council and the police and, indeed, the parents involved have instigated, presided over, acquiesced to or simply become users of this delinquent scheme." The full story of the gate (including a 70-page email chain over the course of three years or so) may be found here: school gate saga.
