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.

Here we have brambles in Leafy Lane, marjoram with ragwort and an oxeye daisy, a rye grass with the Scots pine sentinel at the western end of Leafy Lane Wood beyond and convolvulus arvensis with the cowshed beyond all in Boxfields Road, the last two at the edge of the old married quarters (north) site

Before we head off down Boxfields Road, we see some contrasting creams and greys in the western sky
Some kind of oat grass in the foreground with an ivy-covered, concrete shelter beyond at the edge of the former married quarters (north) site and adjacent to the site of Webb's shop in Boxfields Road
The routes of Aldhelm Crescent and Everly Road are still visible 55 years after the demolition of the married quarters (north) site in Boxfields Road. In the foreground we see the southern stile of right-of-way BOX32 and a patch of yarrow.
