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.

Just a short hop to buy bread at Wadswick on this last day of warm, sunny weather which has lasted throughout the latter part of May and into the first two days of June. The traffic in the Bradford Road is still not up to its full, pre-Covid levels and in the extended inter-traffic silences, one can imagine what a lovely track this would have been to walk along particularly on a day in early summer.
Well, there was no bread at Wadswick; it has been 'discontinued' as sales were poor. Nil desperandum - we return to Rudloe where we pass the long days in feasting and happy conversation, sitting at our golden tables drinking nectar from golden cups, entertained by a minstrel on the lyre and eating sweet-smelling ambrosia. We inhale the aroma of burnt offerings lit in our honour by the people of Box hundreds of feet below in the valley.
