Welcome To Calne Heritage Quarter
It’s never been easier to discover Calne’s thriving past with the installation of six new maps around the town’s Heritage Quarter. Each of the six maps contains site-specific information and historical photographs, offering readers a glimpse into the past of each location.
Produced in collaboration between Calne Heritage Centre, Calne Town Council and community tourism group Calne Our Place, the maps are designed to encourage both visitors and residents to step off the beaten track and explore Calne’s historic streets and parks.
Sue Boddington, curator of Calne Heritage Centre, describes “We hope these attractive and informative maps placed in strategic locations will help visitors and residents to understand and appreciate the town’s long and fascinating history and stimulate a desire to visit the Heritage Centre, with its wealth of photographs and information, to discover more.”
The maps can be found on interpretation boards outside Calne Heritage Centre and on The Green, as well as in bus stops on the High Street, The Pippin and either side of The Strand. Funded by grants from Wiltshire Council through Calne Area Board and Calne Chamber of Commerce, the maps also feature the location of Calne’s Blue Plaques and points of interest with the Heritage Quarter.
