Calne, an English market town in Wiltshire, and until 1885 a parliamentary burgh, is the centre of the famous Wiltshire bacon-curing industry. In the 10th century a meeting was held here by St. Dunstan on the subject of celibacy among the clergy. The floor of the meeting house gave way, and all St. Dunstan's opponents were precipitated to the ground.
