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 June 2021 and the green leaves of summer are calling us to the Rudloe litter-pick. The verdant, vigorous verge of the Bradford Road features in the title photograph along with Lorraine patrolling in the background.

A low turnout this month with Rod, Lorraine, Dave, Gordon and Meg pictured; Mike is out of picture so with yours truly, that makes just seven
Rod heading off down the Bradford Road towards Thorneypits in search of litter
Oxeye daisies at the entrance to the old barn, Dickens Gate houses beyond
Nettles and garlic mustard in the Bradford Road verge
The Rudloe Estate beech ... and who is that wandering past in the Bradford Road?
The remaining 21 acres of Miscanthus with Redcliffe's Park Place greenfield development beyond (view from Skynet Drive). One wonders what plans are in the offing for this last green patch to the south of the Bradford Road.
The maple at the Bradford Road end of Skynet Drive, Rudloe Estate beyond
It's so much fun paying £126,000 for 40% of a three-bed house (no two-beds left)
The most extensive pile of rubbish, the Corsham Science Park monstrosity, lies empty beyond the fallen ash, nettles and the Bradford Road
This month's modest haul, eight bags (between seven of us) will be collected by Wiltshire Council tomorrow (actually by its French contractor idverde (what about 'taking back control'?))
