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.

Where's the sanity clause? There ain't no sanity claus (Groucho Marx). Apparently, there were about 700,000 people on this People's Vote march on 20th October 2018; the last time such numbers marched in London was at the Anti-war march in 2003. Then it was a protest against the Second Gulf War or Iraq War or Weapons of Mass Destruction War; and were the protesters right then? As with the Second Gulf War, Brexit has been based on disinformation and deceit or lies if you prefer and the government should now listen to the people, something it disastrously failed to do in 2003.

However, through the wonders of the Internet, we can see and hear all that went on there. The actor Brian Cox made a powerful, impassioned speech via videolink; this may be found at around the 1 hour 46 minute mark (1:46:00) of the video below:
