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.
The pages below are taken from Wiltshire Studies, Volume 101 of the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Magazine, 2008 - "Dry stone walls: a biological treasure?" by John Presland. This article may give some insight into what has potentially been lost by the dismantling and removal of 300 metres of dry stone wall in the Gladman/Redrow development fields at Pickwick.
