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.

Spring is springing with bright, emerging leaves on broadleaf trees but this season usually flatters to deceive. This spring is no different as there have been cold, easterly winds blowing. The weather stats tell us that this has been the coldest April for over thirty years; it has also been the driest for many decades as we have received less than 10% of the expected rainfall (blame the easterly winds again). This local walk on 22nd April 2021 was around the streets of Rudloe (but included a short trip to Corsham) - the title picture shows the two maples on the Bradford Road close to Rudloe Estate entrance.
