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.


Contact rudloescene through the 'Contact' page.


Sometimes it isn't possible to fit photographs and associated text to a particular location so, in November 2019, a new webpage 'Here and there' (and sub-pages) has been added for such wanderings.

Long Dean - 19th May 2024

This 'wandering', on Saturday 15th May 2021 fits the bill, as suggested above, of no particular location; in fact, it records a journey from Combe Down to Rudloe. You may remember (if you're old enough) the famous film 'London to Brighton in Four Minutes' often shown on TV in the sixties. The film was taken from the cab of an electric train on a journey from London Victoria to Brighton and was speeded up in order to fit the four-minute title requirement. If you let the 88 photos in the gallery below 'run', each will be on-screen for 3 seconds giving a total time to see the whole gallery of 4 minutes 24 seconds. Combe Down to Rudloe in Four Minutes (or so).
