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 two title photographs show the electrification infrastructure at Hullavington and two locals discussing same. 'Red shirt at Hullavington' is a reminder of an episode in 1961 when I was told to get off the platform by the signalman as my red shirt might have been taken for a red flag by a train driver. I spent the day on the footbridge or in the waiting room - see the 'archive steam' section.
