Calne Town Guide
Calne is a pleasant and thriving market town on the edge of the North Wessex Downs, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In its long and interesting history, Calne has been home to woollen broadcloth and pork processing industries, each of which has left its mark on the town. Today, the town is prosperous and growing. The large Porte Marsh industrial estate is a principal employer, and as an increasingly popular commuter town, many residents work in Bath, Bristol or Swindon.
