Nuneaton and Bedworth is a borough located in northern Warwickshire. It is a mixture of attractive green belt land and the densely populated towns of Nuneaton and Bedworth from which the district takes its name. In total it is home to around 120,000 residents. It is bordered by Rugby to the east, and North Warwickshire to the west.
From its origins as small village, the town of Nuneaton grew gradually from the 17th century onwards, fuelled by the activity of the Warwickshire coalfields. The Industrial Revolution in the 19th century saw a successful textile industry grow, along with brick and tile making and brewing. These traditional industries have declined significantly and the town is now a commuter town for nearby Coventry and Birmingham. However, further regeneration of the town centre is underway.
Bedworth originated as a small market town and experienced rapid growth in the 19th century. This was mainly a result of the coal mining industry and an overspill of ribbon weaving and textile industries based in nearby Coventry. Bedworth ceased to be a coal mining town with the closure of the last colliery in 1994. Thanks to its transport links it is now considered to be largely a dormitory town for the nearby employment centres in Coventry, Birmingham and Leicester.
Despite these two centres of population enjoying a quieter period compared to their industrial past, they can still be the location of unfortunate accidents involving workplaces, transport links and public places.
