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.
Rosie can't believe her eyes - the Donkey Field woodland has been destroyed since her last visit - winter 1998/99. The first gallery below shows some images (there are others elsewhere in the Westwells/Donkey Field pages) of the Donkey Field before the 1998/9 destruction by Ashfield Land.
For full-page images, click on the icon with outward-facing arrows at the bottom-right of the gallery below
Now we fast-forward, first to June 2002 when the shrubs and flowers at the Donkey Field had started to regenerate, then to March 2003 when, once again, the landowner brought about complete devastation with the area resembling a war zone.
