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.

23rd September 2023 brought the 2nd National Rejoin March to the streets of London, the 1st Rejoin March having taken place last October. The march saw tens of thousands (not the 'hundreds' misreported in much of the UK media) march from Park Lane to Parliament Square where a number of renowned speakers, including A. C. Grayling and Guy Verhofstadt, addressed the throng. The title pictures show: Finbarr in Piccadilly, so; Ian in St James's Street and a tranquil spot in Parliament Square.
