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.

12th August 2023 - LMS Jubilee no. 45596 Bahamas heading the Railway Touring Company's West Somerset Express from Paddington to Minehead stopped at Frome to take on water. The title picture shows Richard, who had travelled down from Barnsley with 14,000 litres of water, filling Bahamas' tender with half that load. He will then live the high life in Frome waiting for the train's return whereupon the remaining 7,000 lites will be 'uploaded'.

The fully-loaded tanker awaits the arrival of the West Somerset Express
