Nuneaton
was originally an Anglo-Saxon
Anglo-Saxon
settlement known as 'Etone' or 'Eaton', which translates literally as 'settlement by water'. 'Etone' was listed in the Domesday Book
Domesday Book
as a small hamlet. The settlement gained its current name of Nuneaton
Nuneaton
in the mid-12th-century when a Benedictine
Benedictine
nunnery known as Nuneaton Priory
Nuneaton Priory
(parts of which still exist) was established. A market was established in 1226, which is still held, and Nuneaton
Nuneaton
developed into a thriving market town. The nunnery was destroyed in 1539 during King Henry VIII's Dissolution of the Monasteries.[5][6] King Edward VI
King Edward VI
School was established in 1552 by a royal charter by King Edward VI.[7] The school was originally a fee paying school, although the county council provided some scholarships, and became non-fee paying as a result of the education act of 1944. The voluntary aided school had around 400 boys in the 1960s.[8] In 1974 the grammar school closed and was re-established as a sixth form college.[7] Coal mining
Coal mining
had become an important local industry as early as the 13th Century, and would remain the area's largest industry until the late 20th Century. In the later half of the 18th Century, during the Industrial Revolution
Industrial Revolution
a number of textile industries were established in Nuneaton
Nuneaton
including ribbon weaving, and the production of hats and leather goods. Brick
Brick
and tile making and brewing also became important industries.[5] At the time of the first national census in 1801 Nuneaton
Nuneaton
was one of the largest towns in Warwickshire, with a population of 5,000. By 1901 this had grown to over 25,000.[6] Nuneaton's growth was enhanced by the opening of the Coventry
Coventry
Canal in 1790, connecting Nuneaton
Nuneaton
to Coventry
Coventry
and to the Trent and Mersey Canal.[9] The railways arrived in Nuneaton
Nuneaton
in 1847, with the opening of the Trent Valley Railway.[6] Nuneaton
Nuneaton
parish included the settlements of Attleborough and Stockingford. The parish was joined with Chilvers Coton
Chilvers Coton
parish in 1894 to form an urban district. Nuneaton
Nuneaton
was upgraded to the status of a municipal borough in 1907, to which the parishes of Weddington and part of Caldecote were added in 1931.[5] Due largely to munitions factories being located in Nuneaton, the town suffered heavy bombing damage during the Second World War. The heaviest bombing raid on Nuneaton
Nuneaton
took place on 17 May 1941, when 100 people were killed, 380 houses were destroyed, and over 10,000 damaged; several smaller raids took place on the town, most notably on 25 June 1942.[7] Economy[edit]

Ropewalk Shopping Centre

Nuneaton's traditional industries like textiles and manufacturing have declined significantly in the post-war years. Due to its transport links, Nuneaton
Nuneaton
is now largely a commuter town for nearby Coventry
Coventry
and Birmingham. However electronics and distribution remain major economic activities in the town. MIRA Limited, formerly the Motor Industry Research Association, is based on a disused wartime airfield on the A5, to the north of the town. One of the biggest developments in the town's history, the multimillion-pound Ropewalk Shopping Centre, opened on 1 September 2005 in the hope that it will give the town extra income from the shopping, attract more visitors and retailers, and attract shoppers as an alternative to larger retail centres such as Birmingham, Coventry, Leicester and Solihull, with other shopping available at the longer established Abbeygate Shopping Centre located in the centre of the town. Holland & Barrett has its headquarters in the town, while Bermuda Park, which is south of Nuneaton, is the location of the national distribution centres of Dairy Crest
Dairy Crest
and RS Components. Nuneaton
Nuneaton
is also the location of several international online marketing companies. Politics[edit]

National[edit] Nuneaton
Nuneaton
is part of the constituency of the same name in the House of Commons. The constituency is currently represented by the Conservative Party Member of Parliament (MP), Marcus Jones, who was first elected in the 2010 general election. From 1935–1983 Nuneaton
Nuneaton
was a safe Labour seat, but it has become more marginal. Between 1983 and 1992, the Conservatives held the seat, until losing it back to Labour. For the next 18 years, the Labour Party (in the form of Bill Olner) was the local representative at Parliament, until his retirement. Local[edit] The local council, Nuneaton
Nuneaton
and Bedworth, is currently controlled by the Labour party.[10] On 1 April 1974, as a part of wholesale local authority reorganisation, the then Nuneaton
Nuneaton
Borough Council was merged with the neighbouring Bedworth
Bedworth
Urban District to form a new district council. Borough status was conferred on the new district on 15 November 1976. The new council was initially known as "Nuneaton Council" and then " Nuneaton
Nuneaton
Borough Council". However, in 1980, following objections from Bedworth
Bedworth
residents, the name of the Borough was changed to " Nuneaton and Bedworth
Nuneaton and Bedworth
Borough Council".[11] The council was controlled by the Labour Party from 1973, when the shadow council was elected in preparation for the 1974 merger, until the 2008 local elections, when the Conservatives gained control, ending 35 years of Labour rule. (Further reading: Nuneaton and Bedworth
Nuneaton and Bedworth
Borough Council election, 2008)[12][13] However, the period of Conservative control was relatively short lived. The Labour Party won two seats from the Conservative Party in the 2010 local elections, giving no party overall control of the council (but leaving the Labour Party as the largest grouping). (Further reading: Nuneaton and Bedworth
Nuneaton and Bedworth
Borough Council election, 2010)[14] In 2012 Labour gained a further 8 seats to regain overall control. (Further reading: Nuneaton
Nuneaton
and Bedworth Borough Council election, 2012) Nuneaton
Nuneaton
is currently covered by 11 of the borough's 17 electoral wards (see table below). Each ward elects two councillors, who serve 4 year terms. There are elections every 2 years.

Religion[edit]

St Nicolas Parish Church

Nuneaton's name reflects the effect that Christianity
Christianity
has had upon the town's history. Although the Benedictine
Benedictine
nunnery which gave the town its name was destroyed at the time of the Reformation, the remaining fragments were incorporated into the Anglican
Anglican
church building now known as the Abbey Church of St Mary the Virgin in Manor Court Road. This is a Victorian construction. Church of England[edit] Near the town centre, but unusually not a part of it and outside the ring road, lies the mediaeval church of St. Nicolas- a grade I listed building.[38] Chilvers Coton
Chilvers Coton
contains All Saints' Church, where Mary Ann Evans (George Eliot) worshipped and Justin Welby, now Archbishop of Canterbury, served as a curate.[39] This was badly damaged by bombing during the Second World War, and rebuilt largely by German prisoners of war. There are also Anglican
Anglican
churches in Weddington (St James's), Attleborough (Holy Trinity), Stockingford (St Paul's), Galley Common (St Peter's), Abbey Green (St Mary's), and more recently built(1954), in Camp Hill St Mary's And St John's Roman Catholic Church[edit] There are two parishes in the town serving the Catholic community in Nuneaton. Our Lady of the Angels on Coton Road, was opened in 1838 (originally as St Mary's). The building, designed by Joseph Hansom, was extensively remodeled in 1936. The Parish of St Anne's, Chapel End, Nuneaton
Nuneaton
was created in 1949 out of the Parish of Our Lady of the Angels (which originally covered the whole town). The original church building was replaced with the existing church, which was opened in 2000. Other Christian traditions[edit] In the town, Baptist, Methodist, Wesleyan Reform Union, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Pentecostal, the Salvation Army, United Reformed and Christadelphian
Christadelphian
churches serve their respective congregations. A Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses
Jehovah's Witnesses
is located in the Stockingford area and Christadelphians in Whitestone. Other world religions[edit] In addition to Christianity, there are also followers of Islam, Sikhism
Sikhism
and Hinduism. There is a mosque on Frank Street, Chilvers Coton and two gurdwaras (Sikh temples): the Nuneaton
Nuneaton
Guru Nanak Gurdwara
Gurdwara
in Park Avenue, Attleborough, and the Shri Guru Tegh Bahadur Gurdwara
Gurdwara
in Marlborough Road, Chilvers Coton. A number of Jewish families have settled in and around Nuneaton
Nuneaton
over the past two centuries as local industries have grown and ebbed. Historically, families would travel for important life events and holidays to worship at the mediaeval Spon Street Synagogue
Synagogue
in Coventry, at the short lived Hinckley
Hinckley
Synagogue
Synagogue
in the early 20th century and most recently, in the modern Coventry
Coventry
Reform Synagogue. There has never been a formal, organised community in the area and most Jewish people are now elderly, with younger more observant people moving to larger communities in London and Manchester. The Baha'i Faith
Baha'i Faith
was introduced to Nuneaton
Nuneaton
in the early 1970s and now has a community of over 30 members. Statistics[edit] In the 2011 Census, 63.6% of the population of Nuneaton
Nuneaton
and Bedworth said they were Christian, 24.0% of no religion, 2.3% Muslim, 2.2% Sikh, 1.1% Hindu, and 0.7% Buddhist or of other religions. 6.1% did not state their religion.[40] Media[edit] Radio[edit] The local radio stations are:
