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.

23rd May 2015 - in the Bradford Road at Rudloe. The rural nature of this stretch of road will be completely destroyed (all the trees on the east side of the road will be felled) by the Hannick speculative development. The full list of trees that will go is given in the 6th October 2013 article in 'News Archive' here: http://www.rudloescene.co.uk/news-archive/ - the list includes ash, maple including Norway maple, oak, apple, goat willow and blackthorn (the sloes on the blackthorn are the size of plums - quite the biggest I have ever seen) and also wych elm (which was not included in the 2013 list). The wooded 'canopy' here is unique along the road's entire length between Corsham and Bradford.
