Market-day, Saturday. Nuneaton is said to have derived its name from a nunnery founded about the middle of the 12th century, portions of which still remain. Ribbons were formerly a staple mfr. here, but the trade has declined, and a large industry now exists in the preparation of woven worsted goods. There are also factories for cotton, elastic, &C., while wool and skin dressing, iron working, edge-tool making, and malting are active industries; and brick fields, coal mines, and ironstone mines are in the neighbourhood. Nuneaton has an endowed grammar school founded in the time of Edward VI., and an endowed free school founded in 1712.
