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.

*Our charming host ('hostess' doesn't sound quite right) Sheila from Bury (Lancashire) in the GIG carriage provided some information which made me think 'why the hell had I not thought of that before' ... this was that pine trees are/were to be found at many stations across the old GWR network. Sheila told us that this was a GWR policy to enable passengers to locate country stations. It never crossed my mind that the pines at, for example, Bathampton Junction (Scots) or Hullavington (larch) were there by (railway) design.
