Nuneaton: A Town Full of Cultural and Economic Connections
The town of Nuneaton in the United Kingdom lies just four miles north east of Coventry and is part of the wider Warwickshire county. It has a rich history of being a major industrial centre since the 18th century when lime kilns, collieries and other heavy industrial operations began to form the basis of its economy. In more recent times, the town has become more well-known for its connections to the automotive industry, finance, and motorsport.
The town's name comes from the River Anker, which runs along its eastern border, with the 'Nun' prefix likely coming from the presence of a convent in the area during the 7th century. The town grew around market farming which developed after the dissolution of monasteries during the 16th century, and it became a corporate borough from 1874 until 1932. During this period, the local population grew from 3,160 inhabitants (in 1801) to 25,441 by 1931. Much of the local industry during this period came from the leather and ribbon trades, as well as primitive collieries and brickworks.
The Development of the Car and Finance Industries
The 20th century saw an expansion in the numbers of light engineering, food and clothing works, as well as the Daimler Company opening an automotive plant in 1937 which started the association of the town with the motor industry. This was followed by the British Lorry & Tractor Co in 1949, and then Triumph Motorcycles establishing a production plant in 1971. This plant was replaced in 1991 by the Powertrain Ltd plant which has continued to be at the forefront of the automotive sector in Nuneaton.
With the number of businesses in the town increasing, the finance industry began to become more prominent in Nuneaton as well. This started with the creation of the Nuneaton Building Society in 1835 and this grew to become the Nuneaton Permanent Benefit Building Society which became one of the most successful in the country and was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1927. Over the years, the building society has seen a number of mergers and takeovers and remains the main financier in Nuneaton today.
The Town's Links with Motorsport
As well as being well known for its ties with the car and finance industries, Nuneaton is also linked with motor racing. The local circuit, NJ Park, is a MotorSport UK-recognised circuit, and one of the most popular circuits in the UK outside of London. Famous drivers to have raced at NJ Park include Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, who both raced here during their formative years. The circuit has also seen a number of UK series races, as well as European Championships and Formula 3 international events.
Nuneaton's population has grown steadily over the past 200 years, increasing from an estimated 4,077 inhabitants in 1801 to an estimated 97,372 in 2016. Located in the heart of England, the town has a population which is 97.3% white, with a further 1.9% of the population classifying themselves as being Asian or Asian British, 0.2% as African or African British, and 0.06% as Chinese or other ethnic group. The median age of the local population is 40.1 years, and more than 70% of the population are classified as Christian. The median gross income is £25, 000 per year, slightly above the region's median of £24,374.
Nuneaton is an industrial town with a rich history of being home to the light engineering, finance and automotive industries. Over the years, the town has become synonymous with the car industry, with the Powertrain Ltd plant being one of the largest employers in Nuneaton.
