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.

The first or second week of May is the 'traditional' time for the flowering of wild garlic/ramsons so it's off to Monks Wood to see what's occurring on Tuesday 4th May 2021. There's still a strong, cold wind blowing which was particularly fearsome around the brow of Box Hill (in fact, it blew my hat off). The title picture is of a multi-trunked tree near the southern entrance to Monks Wood (and very remiss of me, I didn't check which species).
And, by the way, don't believe everything you read ... five of the photographs in the Peacock Trail leaflet are mine but you won't find my name in the list of credits ...
