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.

K&A and Bath - Mar 2024. This is the report of a trip to Bath through Bathampton Meadows and along the Kennet & Avon Canal on 8th March 2024. The title picture shows the riverbank behind the Podium, close to Pulteney Bridge, in this World Heritage City.

These steel planters (three on this side of the road) with stylised prose were installed a few years ago in the London Road with young trees which would grow to provide a more pleasing entrance to the city from the east - now look at them
Bikes attached to these railings would be a far more pleasing addition to the street scene than bins and bags of rubbish - Salisbury Conservative Club, London Road
