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.

Shpring has shprung at last to the extent that this 26th March 2018 walk to Colerne was undertaken without a coat. The title picture finds us close to Colerne having come from Widdenham. After the long climb the road to Tutton Hill provides a bit of level relief before the steep ascent on Tutton Hill itself.
