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.

On this glorious November (17th) 2018 day, Viki decided to forgo housework in favour of a foray into Leafy Lane Wood. We have been rewarded with a glimpse of the great outdoors on our doorstep.

Light and colour in Leafy Lane Wood. Actually, leaves have fallen earlier this year possibly due to the hot, dry summer.
Sporophytes emerging from moss on a fallen tree. Moss is a common habitat for creatures called tardigrades - for more information on these quite remarkable invertebrates - see https://serc.carleton.edu/microbelife/topics/tardigrade/index.html
Viki described this skyward view through maple branches as 'Tangled up in blue'

One of the two beeches that, very strangely, fell on the day following the public inquiry into the pathways in the wood (see 'News', 'Rudloe', 'Leafy Lane' for the articles on this story)
