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.

Field awash with poppies at Boxfields with cottages of Lower Kingsdown Road beyond - 2nd June 2018

Poppies at Boxfields in a field of oilseed rape with Kingsdown beyond - 2nd June 2018
Poppy seeds that have been lying dormant for years have suddenly germinated in many fields across north-west Wiltshire
Continuing the dormancy theme, apparently seeds can lie dormant for 80 years; why they should germinate this year is a mystery
Zoomed shot towards Kingsdown; golf course on the horizon
Not so many poppies at the eastern end of the field; Kingsmoor Wood beyond
A shaft of sunlight slowly crosses the field
Herb robert with poppies and oilseed rape
A wider view still looking west
A zoomed version of the previous view
Another similar view, different light
Cottages of Lower Kingsdown Road (west of Doctors Hill) beyond the poppies
View east now towards Wadswick with elderberry in the foreground
This east-west byway skirts the dry stone wall that separates these two big Boxfields fields
Different view now with cow parsley after wandering to the east
Now a view east towards Wadswick
