Discover & explore Wiltshire's Calne, The wool trade used to be the main industry in this town; today it's bacon. Calne, which has a 1,000-year history, is still a market town with weekly markets. There are some beautiful Georgian structures, and the Perpendicular-style church is noteworthy. It features an enormous 12th-century nave, as well as a fine 17th-century Gothic tower that replaced one that fell in I638.
The 3rd Marquess of Lansdowne erected a column to honour an ancestor in the 19th century. It rises 125 feet above Cherhill, a lovely village two and a half miles east of Calne. Oldbury Settlement, a historic Iron Age camp perched high in the hills with a white horse carved in 1780 just below, lies just south. While the property is privately held in this area, there are some historic public routes that provide access.
