Nuneaton ( n\u0259-NEE-t\u0259n) is a market town in the borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth in northern Warwickshire, England, located adjacent to the county border with Leicestershire to the north-east.
Nuneaton's population at the 2021 census was 88,813, making it the largest town in Warwickshire.Originally a small riverside settlement known as Etone, Nuneaton gained its name from a medieval nunnery which was established in the 12th century, during which it also became a small market town.
It later developed into an important industrial town due to ribbon weaving and coal mining.
The author George Eliot was born on a farm on the Arbury Estate just outside Nuneaton in 1819 and lived in the town for much of her early life. Her novel Scenes of Clerical Life (1858) depicts Nuneaton.
There is a hospital named after her, The George Eliot Hospital. There is also a statue of George Eliot in the town centre."}}}}
