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.

The so-called 'strategic gap' between Corsham/Pickwick and Rudloe is being developed. Each day is filled with the noise of earthmoving trucks from early morning until dusk. But apart from the roar of the giant engines, the machines appear to spend most of their time in reverse gear thus giving rise to a constant beeping (which negates their usefulness - if there is a continual beep then the silence is what catches the ear). Anyway, we're in no danger a couple of hundred yards away with houses and roads inbetween ... so why can we hear it? Room for a Dragon's Den invention here. I would have liked to have met (already dead I believe) the chap that invented the reversing beeper and to have stuffed one right up his derriere.
