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.

In Leafy Lane twixt Dandelion Cafe and Leafy Lane Wood. The oak is springing into leaf but the sycamore is long gone. Quite a bit of tree work undertaken last week (at wrong time of year) around the beech copse at Park Avenue entrance.
