Nuneaton is the largest town in the English county of Warwickshire, and the borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth. Nuneaton is most famous for its association with the 19th century author George Eliot, who was born on the Arbury estate just outside the town in 1819 and lived in the town for much of her early life.
Nuneaton’s traditional industries like textiles and manufacturing have declined drastically in the post-war years. Due to its good transport links, Nuneaton is now largely a commuter town for nearby Coventry and Birmingham, however electronics and distribution remain major economic activities in the town.
One of the biggest developments in the town’s history, the multi-million pound Ropewalk Shopping Centre, opened in September, 2005, in the hope of bringing extra income to the town from shopping, attracting more visitors and retailers, and steering shoppers from larger retail centres like Birmingham, Leicester, Solihull and Coventry.
