    6 Quirky Facts About Calne

    1. Big Heads
      Three very notable brains to have come from Calne include, the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the scientist Joseph Priestley (who discovered oxygen while working in nearby Bowood House) and Jan Ingenhousz who discovered photosynthesis while also working at Bowood.
    2. Calne Down!
      The name does seem to confuse many people, it’s pronounced ‘karn’, as in, “I karn’t remember how to pronounce it.”.
    3. Woollen Town
      Like many towns in Wiltshire, during the 19th century, Calne was a prosperous town making woollen cloth and textiles.
    4. “…and it’s goodnight from Pym.”
      John Pym was the town’s MP during the 1620’s, and famously one of the driving forces behind the opposition to the monarchy and Charles I that led to the English Civil War. When he died he was buried in Westminster Abbey with great pomp and splendour. When the monarchy was restored in 1660, he was dug up and thrown in a ditch!
    5. Ham It Up
      During the 1770s the Harris family founded a very successful bacon curing business which at one time employed over 1,700 people. The company’s success is the main reason behind the fame of Wiltshire Ham. There’s even a piggy statue in the town centre.
    6. No-castle
      The town is littered with names linked to a castle, there is a Castle Hill, and even the town’s coat of arms features a castle, but strangely there’s no evidence that a castle ever existed in Calne.
