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.
Contact rudloescene through the 'Contact' page.
Two cafes and a burial - 16th February 2023. The title picture shows the A4 road bridge and the eastern portal of Middlehill Tunnel from Quarry Hill; in the foreground we see a section of the scores of trees recently planted by the Cotswold Wardens on Grove Farm land.
We start off in Leafy Lane in this, the flowering season of winter aconites. The first picture in the gallery below shows the current, miserable situation; compare this with the following five photos taken at the turn of the century.
