Coming to Calne?
Nestled at the northern edge of the north Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Calne is a town in the north of Wiltshire. Records of the settlement stretch back to 978 AD, where it was occasionally an important place for Saxon religious and political dealings. It has many historical buildings, such as St Mary’s Church and the Tudor town hall, alongside more modern landmarks like the town library, which was opened by the Queen and praised for its innovative design.
Welcome to Wiltshire
Wiltshire has been a significant English county for centuries, being the home of two World Heritage Sites: the mysterious stone circles of Avebury and Stonehenge. The idyllic, rolling countryside is punctuated by charming towns and villages, great opportunities for golf, fishing and horse riding, as well as the medieval city of Salisbury, characterised by its staggering, ancient cathedral, and home to an extensive annual programme of events and festivals.
Lose Yourself in The North Wessex Downs
The North Wessex Downs, Wiltshire’s Area of outstanding Natural Beauty, is always worth seeing for yourself, whether you have a particular attraction in mind or simply want to enjoy the great outdoors. The panoramic views and rolling hills have captured the imagination of many writers over the years, and even some film producers, with the National Trust house Basildon Park being the set of the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice.
