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.

17th November 2023 brought some sunny weather and a trek to Bathford. The title picture shows some autumn colour in Beech Road. Photos of the excursion start (of course) at Rudloe and continue through Box Hill, Box, Ashley and Shockerwick.
Not even half-way but a stop for coffee at the Birdhouse cafe was called for. The lunch menu, shown in the first photo in the gallery below, was tempting. However, I could not resist asking if I could have cheese & beans on toast to which the innkeeper (!) responded "Are you from Rudloe?". Seriously, the staff here are very responsive so they will always try to meet any special requests.
