Calne is a town and civil parish in Wiltshire, southwestern England, at the northwestern extremity of the North Wessex Downs hill range, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.Calne is on a small river, the Marden, that rises 2mi away in the Wessex Downs, and is the only town on that river. It is on the A4 road national route 19mi east of Bath, 6mi east of Chippenham, 13mi west of Marlborough and 16mi southwest of Swindon. Wiltshire's county town of Trowbridge is 15mi to the southwest, with London 82mi due east as the crow flies. At the 2011 Census, Calne had 17,274 inhabitants.HistoryIn AD 978, Anglo-Saxon Calne was the site of a large two-storey building with a hall on the first floor. It was here that St Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury met the Witenagemot to justify his controversial organisation of the national church, which involved the secular priests being replaced by Benedictine monks and the influence of landowners over churches on their lands being taken away. According to an account written about 1000, at one point in this meeting Dunstan called upon God to support his cause, at which point the floor collapsed killing most of his opponents, whilst Dunstan and his supporters were in the part that remained standing. This was claimed as a miracle by Dunstan's supporters.Add Calne and other destinations to your itinerary using our United Kingdom road trip planning website , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
