Nuneaton is the largest town in the Borough of Nuneaton and Bedworth and in the English county of Warwickshire. The population of Nuneaton's eleven wards in 2011 was 81,877.Nuneaton is most famous for its associations with the 19th century author George Eliot, who 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. In her novel Scenes of Clerical Life (1858), "Milby" is the thinly disguised market town of Nuneaton.The Nuneaton Built-up area is a conurbation incorporating Nuneaton and several surrounding villages, including Hartshill and Bulkington, and had a population of 92,968 according to the 2011 census. This is significantly down on the 2001 census population of 132,236, the decrease occurring mainly because Hinckley no longer forms part of the built-up area.GeographyThe town is located 9mi north of Coventry, 20mi east of Birmingham and 103mi northwest of London. The River Anker runs through the town. Nuneaton (as defined by the Office for National Statistics) had a population of 70,721 according to the 2001 census, though the 2008 estimate is closer to 73,000 inhabitants. However, both of these figures exclude the Camp Hill area of the town, which is deemed to be in the Hartshill subdivision of the Nuneaton urban area by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), as can be seen from the map included in its report on Key Statistics for urban areas and the dataset of this report, which cites a population of 12,207 for the Hartshill subdivision (by comparison, the population of the civil parish of Hartshill in 2001 was just 3,611 ). A more representative figure is given by the combined population of Nuneaton's 11 wards, which was 78,403 in 2001 according to the ONS (see table below).
