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.

5th March 2020 and it's still raining. Boots or wellies are certainly required for the footpath across the river at Bathford and also for the meadows which are, in fact, nowhere near as bad as in January when they were impassable - see photos in the January 2020 'Here and there' January 2020. The other title photo could take its caption from Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit - thankfully we no longer have black men swinging from trees but still something disturbing given that sapiens (wise!) is the only surviving species of the genus homo. Given the hundreds of thousands (or perhaps a million) of years of human evolution, how could any member of the species think that this behaviour is 'wise'. This example in the woodland below the railway at the Bathford roundabout.
