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.

May 2nd 2018 - in Park Lane and what will become the last vestige of green space between Corsham and Rudloe can be seen beyond the hedge. The final cut of miscanthus was harvested last month.

The Bellway development field lies beyond the Bradford Road trees - these are the last views of open countryside from this viewpoint
The North Wiltshire Landscape Character Assessment stated that this view from Rudloe is 'important' and clear separation should be maintained between Corsham and Rudloe yet the Redcliffe and Bellway developments will deny this
Here, in Westwells Road, the view to Bowden Hill, Cherhill (White Horse) and the Marlborough Downs has been revealed thanks to a fire and subsequent demolition of the Fiveways Estate laundry. And what a view!
Corsham Science Park unnecessarily uses green fields when there is more than enough brownfield space at Rudloe - see the 21st September 2017 article (and artist's impression) here:https://www.rudloescene.co.uk/news/hawthorn/
Wild flower investigation required here on the 'green triangle' between Skynet Drive and Park Lane
Here is that last vestige of future green space again beyond the hedge - picture taken from Park Lane
The green space revealed by a gap in the hedge - the trees of Skynet Drive are beyond
All the trees on the left here in the Bradford Road will be removed by the Bellway greenfield development of 88 homes. Unnecessary of course as there is planning permission for 180 homes on a brownfield site just around the corner.
