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 pictures on this webpage were taken by John Port on 25th October 2022 at the Swanage Railway. The visit of Flying Scotsman has attracted quite a number of enthusiasts.

Aaaaaah the smell of steam. With the closure of our coal mines, we now import inferior quality coal from places like Poland or China and say "Look at us, isn't it wonderful. we are leading the world in becoming carbon neutral".
