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.

Still in the Time of Covid. Writing this on 4th September about a walk to Bath on 25th August 2021 (so a tad late!), the Time of Covid is affirmed as on one day last week, there were 270 deaths and yesterday (3rd September), 42,000 new cases were reported. The walk started on Box Hill (see title picture which shows Folly Cottage in the foreground, Dr Mohr's house in the middleground and the Fosse Way on the horizon), proceeded through Box and Ashley then on to Bathford via Ashley Road. After crossing the river at Bathford, we crossed Bathampton Meadows (flood meadow) and then took the Kennet and Avon towpath into Bath.
