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.

Catkins on the Shockerwick bends on 6th March 2018
Mum and two lambs came running (and bleating) down the field probably believing I was the shepherd
Then the rest of them started towards me
The sheep and lambs in the adjacent field started over towards me also
They could start to get savage if I don't produce some goodies soon
I start to make my escape
Survival equipment - desperately needed on the wild Shockerwick/Bathford frontier in the face of savage sheep
For those that survive the sheep attack, mushy peas along with mushy fish and chips specially created for toothless old gits - Monday to Wednesday 12-2pm
Lots of catkins opposite the Barn (food, survival, bushcraft, cider, you-name-it) on the A4
The A4 (and catkins) at Bathford close to the Barn
Snow still remains around the field margins in this view across the main line to the Farleigh Down escarpment and the eastern reaches of Bathford
