Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
Sitting on the banks of the Marden, a small river that rises 2 miles away in the Wessex Downs, Calne is a recognised Area of Outstanding National Beauty, and is therefore a protected conservation site. Even though it's a tiny town, Calne has a lot of historical significance ' first established in 978AD, it was here that oxygen was first 'discovered' by Joseph Priestley, with Jan Igenhousz later following his work which led to his discovery of photosynthesis. Calne is also known for the Wiltshire Cure, the traditional English technique of curing ham and bacon, started by the Harris family.
Calne offers the best of the stunning Wiltshire surrounds. Just nearby is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Avebury, the pre-historic Silbury Hill and of course, the incredible Stonehenge.
Today, New Calne has all the modern day amenities, including two supermarkets, local restaurants serving international cuisines, shops and boutiques and several pubs. St. Mary's Church is a few minutes walk from the development, while the houses on The Green are a great place to go for a walk. The award-winning Calne Library, opened by the Queen herself in 2001, is another great spot to spend a day.
The town is just off the M4, and is on the A4 road national route, 19 miles east of Bath, 6 miles east of Chippenham, 13 miles west of Marlborough and 16 miles southwest of Swindon.
