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.

Pickwick Road on a Friday afternoon (2nd March 2018)!
Many shops were closed (the Deli, the charity shops, the greengrocer) at around 2pm on this Friday afternoon but the bookshop was open
Spindles, Toby's (butchers) and Green Ginger (but no bread delivery today) were open
Toby's new cabinet for ageing beef (correct temperature and humidity) - five weeks is his preferred length of time
Corsham High Street was a cold, lonely place on this Friday afternoon - few cars, no buses and no taxis so walking was the order of the day
John's antique shop was closed (getting over from Devizes would have been next to impossible)
No people, no bread, no milk but I bought some orgasmic almond milk in Green Ginger

The Methuen Arms and the Grove
