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.

Another pretty grim day for the Rudloe litter pick on Sunday 2nd December. The title picture shows Dave Wright braving the A4 traffic close to Copenacre. And talk about braving the traffic, roughly when we were at this spot, a white van came steaming around the bend below Copenacre. We reckon he had his foot to the floor and was doing about 75 mph so when he got close to us, I reminded him of the speed limit by showing 5 fingers on the right hand and making a 'zero' with the thumb and forefinger with the left hand. He responded with a sign of his own. I mention this elsewhere on rudloescene but friends have been 'caught' going a tad over the limit in a 30 mph zone and have had to pay a fine and undergo a speed awareness course but it's such maniacs as we saw today that need, somehow, to be brought to task.
