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.

2006 and a sunny outlook at Boxfields

Memories of life at Boxfields in the 1940s, 50s and 60s can be found on a Francis Frith webpage here:


But also see the 'Archive', 'Boxfields' page of this website where memories of the area are also recalled.

Skylarks singing at Boxfields. Unless background radiation from The Big Bang can be detected at Boxfields, I guess that the 'rushing' noise is the wind in the trees of Doohan's Wood.

Whilst there have been some photos of hoar frost in the previous gallery, it is such a rare event that the photographer should (and did) take full advantage of the opportunities it gives. The first part of the following gallery (32 pics) is dedicated to hoar frost.

I think we've seen enough snow and frost so here are some spring and summer shots (mainly).

And some autumn shots in and around Quarry Wood
