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.

24th November 2023 brought a round trip through Corsham Park to Chequers then along Easton Lane turning off for Westrop then back via Corsham Park. The title pictures show Corsham Park's ha-ha (ditch and fence) which gives the impression of an uninterrupted view from Corsham Court and some of the many oaks in the park.

Corsham Lake from the park. Along with the ha-ha, the lake was another of the trappings of Capability Brown's design.
