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.

Box Records and Landscape Interpretation day with Mike Marshman and Claire Skinner - 23rd May 2016
Thirty-one souls, some from as far away as Kent, spent the morning of 23rd May 2016 at the Wiltshire History Centre in Chippenham researching maps, photographs, documents, wills and books about Box under the guidance of Mike Marshman and Claire Skinner. After lunch, Mike and Claire led an "interpretive walk" around the village taking in the library (for the Roman villa model), the church and churchyard, vicarage, workhouse, the Bear, blind house, Methodist chapel, manor house, Church of England school and the Market Place.
