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.

5th December 2022 and Gresley A4 4-6-2 Pacific no. 4498 (or 60007 to me) Sir Nigel Gresley hauling a Steam Dreams Bath Christmas Market special is anticipated with glee (too much bloody glee by some) at Bathampton Junction. The couple directly in front arrived late, (and with my nerd hat on) stood on the track side of the gate in our line of sight (I asked them to move back which is where they may be seen in the title photo) but then when the train approached and was a good hundred or more yards away, the bloody (excuse my French) woman started waving at the engine so I had to try to avoid her arm and hand in the pictures (you can see the fingers in the first shot below).

The following picture was taken by fellow-traveller Carl Wadkin-Snaith
