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.

Following a downpour on Saturday which lasted all day, Sunday 3rd October 2021 brought a fine day for the October Rudloe litter-pick. The title photo shows the results of our labours - the bags will be picked up by French contractor (taking back control) idverde tomorrow. Chatting with neighbour Chris on the return leg, we got to discussing the big picture. While our monthly litter-pick is beneficial for the appearance of the surroundings of Rudloe with the added benefits of physical exercise and putting the world to rights, if these bags simply end up in the proverbial 'hole in the ground' then our efforts (big picture-wise) are to no avail. As the collected litter is probably around 80% recyclable (cans, plastic, glass) then I will ask Wiltshire Council whether they currently sort and recycle the contents or if they will do so in the future.
