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.

Dry stone walling at the combined entrance of Wadswick Country Store and Wadswick Green retirement home on the Bradford Road. This picture taken during the 26th March 2020 'daily exercise' suggested by the authorities during the Covid-19 outbreak.
Stay at home, self-isolate, keep two metres apart yet in the place where these measures are most appropriate and where, perhaps, risks are elevated, measures are not taken. I talk of surgeries and hospitals. 'We' needed a blood test this week and 'one' observed that the phlebotomist, performing a relatively intimate procedure, was not wearing a face mask. On enquiring the reason why, the nurse stated that staff had 'complained' about this state of affairs, particularly as there was a stock of 400 at the surgery. For reasons unknown they were not allowed to use them. If the rudloescene reader can fathom the rationale here, please send an electronic postcard via the Contact page.
