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.

A short walk to Corsham on 7th June 2020 to deliver PPE in the Time of Covid. The outward journey was via the Bradford Road with return along the A4. As previously reported, some are taking advantage of the quiet roads.- in the 40 mph limit around St Patrick's Church, a Porsche (as far as I could tell) accelerated so hard that it was doing an estimated 80 mph at Traveller's Rest. The title picture is of the broken wall that bounds the small meadow opposite the roundhouse (by the Guiness Trust's Pickwick Villa).
The 'Johnston empire' mentioned above includes, inter alia: Bath Stone Group Ltd, The Bath Stone Company Ltd, Monks Park Minerals Ltd, Hartham Park Minerals Ltd, Oathill Quarry Ltd and Stone Processing Sales Ltd as well as Great Tew Properties Ltd.
