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.

60009? Just teasing with this pic which is the 'steam' outlet vent at the Swan Hotel, Bradford-on-Avon on 15th July 2018 with much grease in evidence. We had just watched Union of South Africa pass through B-o-A with the Torbay Express (Bristol to Kingswear) and were looking for a breakfast location. On Saturday, 14th, we had seen 60009 at Box Tunnel on its way down to Bristol from the Southall depot when, unfortunately, it was headed by an EWS type 66 diesel.
